College Credit Plus
DUAL CREDIT COURSES: Students can also earn college credit through Southern State Community College by participating in Dual Credit courses on the BHS campus. Students MUST turn in a completed Letter of Intent by April 1st in order to participate in CCP for the upcoming summer, fall, or spring semesters.
Credit is awarded by the participating college upon earning a passing score on a placement test and successful completion of the course and is transferable to other colleges within the State of Ohio. Students also have the option of receiving college credit in a dual credit course by meeting the designated college readiness benchmarks on the ACT. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that students take the ACT prior to the start of the next school year. Please see the guidance department for more information about signing up to take the ACT.

OFF-CAMPUS CCP: Students may also earn college credit through the College Credit Plus (CCP) Program. Information on CCP is provided in January each year. The CCP Program permits Ohio public and nonpublic high school students in grades 7 through 12 to earn college credit and/or high school graduation credit while taking courses on a college campus. Students MUST turn in a completed Letter of Intent by April 1st in order to participate in CCP for the upcoming summer, fall, or spring semesters. After the Letter of Intent is turned into the Blanchester High School Guidance Office, the student is responsible for applying to the college of his/her choice and submitting any necessary forms as well as participating in any necessary placement tests. The cost is covered directly out of the public school’s state foundation funds. Students are responsible for their own transportation and costs related to transportation. Call the Guidance Office at 937-783-2461 for more information.
