CCIC will serve students from every high school in the district. Those students will continue to take core academic classes at their home high schools and will attend CCIC every other day during a morning or afternoon session, with transportation provided to and from each high school. Whether students’ post-high school plans include college, military or entering the workforce right away, CCIC will provide opportunities to gain valuable knowledge and skills and earn college credit and/or industry-recognized certifications.
