The purpose of the Career and College Promise (CCP) program is to offer structured opportunities for qualified high school juniors and seniors to enroll in community college courses that provide pathways that lead to a certificate, diploma, or degree as well as provide entry-level jobs skills. Academic credits earned through Career and College Promise shall enable students who continue into postsecondary education after graduating from high school to complete a postsecondary credential in less time than would normally be required. Three pathways are offered as a collaborative effort between Western Piedmont Community College (WPCC) and Burke County Public Schools (BCPS):
The Career and College Promise program replaces the dual enrollment, Learn and Earn Online, and Huskins programs that students have previously participated in to earn college credit during high school.
