Career Connected Learning
Career Connected Learning is a CTE Dual Credit partnership between college and high
school instructors designed to guide local students into high-skill, high-wage careers
with local industries.
High school students can earn dual credit at both their high school, and at Lower
Columbia College, without leaving high school or doing additional homework!
Dual credit applies to career and technical education (CTE) courses, which then transfer
to college programs. Once you finish high school you can apply your credits to one
of Lower Columbia College's professional-technical programs.
Credits earned at Lower Columbia College will transfer to any Washington State two-year
institution or college, and some four-year colleges.
