High School Instructors and CCC Faculty

High school instructors and college faculty are key to the success of our High School Connections programs. We want to make sure you have what you need. Here you will find information about programs, policies and procedures that affect you and your students.

New to High School Connections programs at CCC?

The college offers four High School Connections programs that award college credit to high school students.

  • If you are a high school instructor at a CCC partner high school, you may be eligible to teach Advanced College Credit (ACC) classes at your school.
  • If you are a CCC faculty member, you have opportunities to participate in ACC, High School Plus (HSP) and High School Career Technical Education Pathways (CTEP) programs.

If you are interested in participating in one of these programs, contact hsconnections@clackamas.edu.

Advanced College Credit (ACC)

The ACC program at CCC operates under Oregon's High School Based College Credit standards for dual credit and sponsored dual credit, adopted in June 2016. ACC classes are college courses taken at the high school and taught by approved high school instructors. High school instructors must meet college credential requirements and align coursework to the college class.

Specific information about articulating new and/or renewing ACC courses is available in the ACC Instructor Handbook.
