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.

The SpringHill Discovery Project is a 9-month gap year program geared to help young adults figure out their gifts and what they might want to pursue in the future.
