History

Since the inception of Dual Credit in 1995, the College Courses in the High Schools Program (CCHS) has grown tremendously. In the last 18 years, great strides have been made to fulfill the lofty goals set forth by the West Virginia Legislature in Senate Bill547 of increasing the college going rate in the state by making more college courses available to students while they are still in high school. Students are able to graduate with several college hours completed which greatly reduces costs and eventual time spent in college.
