Perry High School's College Credit Plus Participation Soars 

Perry Local Schools has made a commitment to a culture of high expectations. The staff leads the way by building their own capacity to be credentialed as both high school teachers and adjunct staff members of a college or university. The Perry staff is qualified to teach 35 college courses giving their students the option to take rigorous course work right at the high school. Currently, there are 267 Perry students taking College Credit Plus (CCP) classes - formerly known as Dual Credit - through Stark State College and 35 Perry students taking college classes through Kent State Stark. Mary Jo Bowersox, School Counselor, estimates that three Class of 2016 students are on track to graduate with an associate degree. 

Jason Conrad, Perry High School principal, shared his thoughts on CCP -  "The advantage for our students becomes twofold:  1) CCP adds rigor to a student's academic load because the curriculum is college level and develops deeper critical thinking skills. 2) There is significant savings to the parent, and when students leave Perry High School, they clearly have an advantage because of the earned credits upon entering college. We haven't had an unsatisfied customer yet!"
