College Credit Plus
Posted Monday, March 2, 2015
Loveland High School (LHS) hosted more than 100 parents and guardians of Loveland students who will be entering grades seven through 12 during the 2015-16 school year Wednesday evening, Feb. 25, to learn more about Ohio’s new College Credit Plus program. The program is designed to give students the option to earn college and high school credits at the same time by taking college courses from community colleges or universities.
“This new program replaces all of the other post-secondary educational opportunities our students and their families have been accustomed to, so we wanted to provide a comprehensive session about what this change would entail,” said Dr. Amy Crouse, assistant superintendent of teaching and learning. “We want our Tiger Family to be clear that the purpose of the new program is to promote academic rigor and variety to our students who are college ready; furthermore, taking a college course from a public college or university College Credit Plus is free – that means no cost to our families for tuition, books or fees.”
During the evening session, an overview of College Credit Plus was provided by representatives from the University of Cincinnati along with Loveland administrators and counselors. Any member of the Tiger Family who was unable to attend the session and is wanting to learn more is encouraged to access all of the information on the Loveland High School website. The website contains an overview of the new program, a Loveland City School District resource guide, university and college contact information, and the College Credit Plus presentation used at the meeting.
