Collaboration with High Schools puts LCCC in the State and National Spotlight

The Ohio Department of Higher Education’s summer issue of CONNECTED featured LCCC ‘s high school partnerships in IT.

Within the past few weeks, Lorain County Community College has been featured from the U.S. Capitol to our state capitol because of the success of partnerships between the college and local high schools.

LCCC President Marcia J. Ballinger, Ph.D., had a fantastic opportunity to participate in a policy forum as one of four panelists at the American Youth Policy Forum (AYPF) in Washington, D.C., attended by more than 150 Congressional staff members and agency representatives.

“I was able to share with them how LCCC’s College Credit Plus, Early College High School (ECHS) and MyUniversity programs create opportunities that lead to the University Partnership and create the greatest value in higher education in Ohio,” Ballinger said.

College Credit Plus (CCP) offers students from 7-12 grade the chance to earn college credit. Courses are frequently offered on-site at local high schools. Classes taken through CCP count for both high school and college credit.

The MyUniversity program is a unique partnership between LCCC and area high schools offering high school students a pathway to the full college experience and a bachelor’s degree by age 20.

ECHS is a high school located on LCCC’s campus for students who will be first-generation college students. They learn in a college environment and, in later grades, are integrated with LCCC students in college classes. Students in ECHS earn both their high school diploma and associate degree.

This was followed by Ohio Department of Higher Education (ODHE) Chancellor John Carey featuring LCCC’s high school partnerships in IT as its cover story in the summer issue of “CONNECTED.”

This quarterly e-newsletter connects Ohio higher education to the business community. The stories in this e-newsletter illustrate the efforts of the ODHE to move students from the classroom to the workforce; and about research and idea development happening within Ohio’s public two-year and four- institutions that is benefiting Ohio businesses.
