Students who are interested in taking college classes while in high school must attend an informational meeting each year along with a parent.  This meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, November 10, 2021 at 6 PM.  This meeting will be a virtual meeting with Kent State, Eastern Gateway, and YSU.  Both student and parent must attend. If you plan on taking any college credit classes during 2022-2023 or during summer of 2022, you must turn in the 'Intent-to-Participate' form by April 1, 2022:


1.  If you were unable to attend the mandatory virtual CCP meeting on November 10, 2021, please watch the youtube recorded video attached http://youtu.be/gcip1gNBAtk.  After viewing, please see Mrs. Barrett in the high school guidance office for the 'Intent to Participant' form.

Parents and students sign and return the form before 4/1/2022.    You will be asked to sign a list that you picked up the "Intent to Participate" forms.  


2.  After you turn in the 'Intent to Participate' form, you must also apply to either Kent State, Eastern Gateway Community College, and/or YSU depending on classes selected:  (Kent, EGCC and YSU will schedule a day to come to the school and help with the application process).


Eastern Gateway Application


Kent CCP Application 


YSU CCP Application 


Even if the student has already attended a CCP meeting in the past, the student and a parent must attend the informational meeting for the upcoming school year. 






On October 14, 2021 during Parent-Teacher Conferences we had a representative from Kent State University here at Beaver Local to give information about the FAFSA, which is a requirement for financial aid for colleges and/or universities.
