Central Carolina Works: Free College Pathways for High School Students
SANFORD — High school students in Chatham, Harnett, and Lee counties will soon be registering for free college classes for the 2015-2016 year through the Central Carolina Works (CCW) program.

CCW enables high school juniors and seniors to enroll, tuition-free, in college credit courses that also apply toward their high school diploma. By the time they graduate from high school, they could earn a certificate and have a jump-start on their career or college education.

CCW is an educational initiative by a consortium including Central Carolina Community College, education (Chatham County Schools, Harnett County Schools, and Lee County Schools), business, industry, and community leaders.

CCW funds the placement of career and college advisors in each of the public high schools in Chatham, Harnett, and Lee counties. These advisors work one-on-one with students to help them take advantage of the state-funded Career and College Promise (CCP) program.

Interested students should contact their Career and College Advisor for more information and to enroll.
The CCW program has grown in popularity from its beginning, currently enrolling 592 students from the nine public high schools in the area. Of those 592 students, 376 are enrolled in a Career and Technical (CTE) Pathway and 216 are enrolled in a College Transfer Pathway. The current total CCP enrollment is 933 students, which includes Lee Early College, charter, private, and home school students.

New CTE Pathways for Fall 2015 include Accounting, Culinary Arts, Laser and Photonics, Library Information Technology, Nurse Aide (new for Lee and Chatham), and Telecommunications Installation and Maintenance.

“Central Carolina Works was designed and conceived to help the student and their family who may not know what post K-12 education and employment is best suited for their interests and abilities,” says Kirk Bradley, Chairman, President & C.E.O. of Lee-Moore Capital Company, who spearheaded the intensive fund-raising to launch the initiative. “By providing a trained professional to help these students understand both curriculum and workforce outcomes available through CCCC, they can make better choices earlier in their middle and high school years.
