13 and in college? Philly students begin a new kind of high school program
Lien and her classmates began a mandatory summer program this week, and attended their first day of a three-credit CCP class on Tuesday — some are taking History of American Diversity, some Women in History. They will take some CCP classes during their freshman and sophomore years, and during their junior and senior years will be fully immersed in the college campus a few blocks away from their high school.
The students may participate in high school sports and other extracurricular programs, and they will have support— both at the high school and the CCP levels — to help them make the academic and social leap to college.
