College Credit Plus

Students qualified under Ohio’s College Credit Plus (CCP) program may choose to enroll in CCP courses.  If a student qualifies, the course can be used by partner districts to meet the 15 and 30 credit hour pathway requirements set forth by CCP.  To be eligible to participate, a student must meet the participating college’s established placement standards for college-level courses.  Students who are eligible for enrollment in CCP classes offered at the MVCTC may have the opportunity to earn dual credit from Clark State Community College (CSCC) and/or Sinclair Community College (SCC), in the following academic and elective courses*:

Work-Based Learning

Apprenticeship/Internship opportunities link secondary education, post-secondary education, business, industry, and government together to provide a seamless career path for high school students. Well-planned and supervised school-based and work-based learning experiences are the foundation for the program. The Apprenticeship program allows students to work and earn a paycheck - while learning skills and earning the certifications that employers want. Registered Apprenticeship provides more than 500,000 apprentices across the U.S. with industry-specific education, on-the-job training, nationally recognized certifications, and guaranteed wage increases. Apprenticeships have a defined timeline of training over 2-4 years, while internships do not have the timeline and do not need to be registered.
