A New Approach to College & Career Preparedness & Success
The CCIC is a stand-alone college and career preparedness facility accessible for high school students in the Cherry Creek Schools. With curriculum rooted in real-world skills and trade certifications ranging from the computer sciences to aviation to health sciences, this facility will offer students a new kind of bridge to college and viable, successful careers.
The Cherry Creek Innovation Campus is geared toward students who…
1. Want to go to college. These students are looking for concurrent enrollment or dual enrollment opportunities to earn credit towards a college degree. These students could also be looking to learn a skill set or trade to help pay for college.
2. Want to go right into the workforce or military after high school. These students want to learn a skill set or trade that will make them more competitive for career preparedness.
3. Are unsure of what they want to do after high school. These students want to further explore their interests and skill sets to enhance their college and career preparedness.
Participating students will continue to earn diplomas from their home high schools. Students will attend the CCIC every other day during a morning or afternoon session, with transportation provided to and from each high school.
Under the Career and Technical Education umbrella, the CCIC expands the district's commitment to preparing students for the academic and professional demands of the 21st century. The student learning experience will mimic state-of-the-art work environments, with a focus on putting learners in an industry based culture and climate.
High schools will continue to host a wide range of CTE programs. This new facility enhances current programming, and is home to more advanced and sophisticated educational opportunities for students.
