Dual Credit/College Credit Plus (CCP) Program

Trailblazer Academy offers middle school and high school students the opportunity to take college courses at Ohio Christian University through Dual Credit/College Credit Plus (CCP) to earn college credit  and/or high school graduation credit through the successful completion of college courses. Our courses are fully accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

Additionally, this program allows students to take college courses on the University Campus, online, or in select high schools.

Students enrolled in either a non-public or public school system in grades 7-12 in the state of Ohio may participate in this program at significantly reduced tuition rate. Under this program students may enroll in 100 and 200 level college courses and receive credit on both the high school and college level. Out-of-state students may participate in the Trailblazer Academy program at a significantly reduced tuition rate. Please refer to the Admissions section for additional requirements.

Students considering this program should check with their high school guidance counselors. The program requires that schools provide counseling to students and parents to inform them of possible risks and consequences of taking part in the dual enrollment programs. Students and parents must submit an Intent to Participate form, indicating that counseling was provided and all responsibilities for participation are  understood. Non-public students may also apply for State Funding to assist with tuition costs.

Students enrolled in the Trailblazer Academy are considered university students and are subject to all the rules and regulations of the University.
