Dual Credit Opportunities

Dual Credit is a way to obtain high school class credit AND college credit by taking 1 class!

At CCHS, our options are:

  • Juniors can take US History Dual Credit with Mr. Dunham.
  • Seniors can take English 111 Advanced Composition and English 215 Rhetoric and Argument with an Ivy Tech online professor. 

To qualify for these, the school will assess your PSAT scores, ACT/SAT scores, and your GPA going into junior or senior year. ​

Seniors – YOUR Ivy Tech transcripts will be ready at the beginning of June. CCHS is unable to send that along for you. If you are needing the class codes and grades unofficially beforehand, please request that information from Mrs. Rodriquez.
You must request your official transcript through the link below, “Order your Ivy Tech Transcript”. If you do not, your credits will not transfer or be evaluated for transfer to the college of your choice.

Lake Geneva Pathway

“The last several months have been strange, to say the least. Not only are people asking you what your future looks like and expecting you to know, but now they are asking you to know in the midst of a pandemic.  

 
I want you to hear that it’s okay to not know. Truly! Take time to consider who you are outside of your parents home. Take time to consider where you want to be in the next 5 years. Take time to ask what adventure God might have for you. Take time. But don’t waste time. Be intentional with it.
 
Every one of our students has left Pathway with a deeper understanding of who Jesus is. They have left with more confidence in their identity in Christ. They have left more equipped in work and life skills and to be disciples that make disciples; no matter their future vocation.”
