College Connections through Jamestown Community College has offered thousands of high school students the opportunity to enrich their high school experience by earning college credit.
College Connections is collaboration between JCC and its partner school districts. The program allows students to earn concurrent high school and college credit by completing JCC courses taught in the high schools by highly qualified, JCC-trained and supported teachers.
High school instructors who teach College Connections courses are reviewed, selected, and supported by JCC faculty. These instructors work with JCC faculty liaisons to ensure that their courses give students an opportunity to experiment with the academic rigor of university coursework while in high school.
The content, assignments, projects, and assessments in College Connections courses are consistent with those taught on the JCC campus. Students work towards the same outcomes as those in on-campus courses. Students who successfully complete College Connections courses earn JCC credit, which is verified by an official transcript.
