Stark State College, Jackson Local Schools partner to offer high school students associate degree pathways

(North Canton, OH – April 1, 2019) –  Jackson High School students now have an easy pathway to earning a full associate degree by taking college classes during their high school years.

Through Stark State College’s College Credit Plus (CCP) program, Jackson students can earn an associate of arts or associate of science degree (or both) while in high school. Students can start the pathway as early as freshman year. Like other CCP classes, Jackson Local Schools is responsible for tuition and textbooks.

The Stark State associate degrees easily transfer to a bachelor’s degree program at a public four-year university or college.

Jackson students also can take CCP classes in a non-degree pathway.

The expanded partnership with Stark State comes after Jackson High School conducted a CCP survey this fall which determined its students were demanding an increased number of college courses.
