Accelerated Learning Center
College Credit Plus
What is the Accelerated Learning Center?
The Accelerated Learning Center (ALC), located within Central Crossing High School, will provide Junior and senior students in the South-Western City School District with the opportunity to take college courses - based on their future plans - while completing high school graduation requirements!
The ALC has been developed as part of the District's Strategic Plan:
Bold Goals - Students can enter college without remediation; Students graduate on time; and Families are vested in planning their student's future.
High Yield Strategies - K-12 career exploration and skills development for students; A rolling four-year plan that supports each student's post-secondary aspirations; and Student access to rigorous coursework to earn credits toward graduation and beyond.
This unique, half-day approach will allow students from all four South-Western high schools and the South-Western Career Academy to experience college level coursework and gain an in-depth understanding of the skills and dedication necessary to succeed in a collegiate environment as well as get a head start on college credits.
There is no cost for the student to participate in the program as South-Western and Columbus State Community College share the cost for the courses.
The ALC meets the requirements of the College Credit Plus program, a requirement for all Ohio school districts.
