Sometimes students overlook or miss the opportunity of community college. Community college is something that can be a great start for someone who wants to experience college at an affordable cost.

Kenwood’s marketing and business teacher, Althea Page, recently organized with CCBC’s Jonathan Howie and Emilie Cherry an opportunity for her students in grades 9-12 to explore the opportunities at the Community College of Baltimore County through a field trip to CCBC’s Essex campus. Ms. Sheggrud, another Kenwood business teacher, and she on February 8 escorted Kenwood students to the campus to learn of the opportunities that await.

There Kenwood students gained exposure to a college campus, met with admissions and learned about the registration process. They also explored the Articulation Credits program for students who participate in the four-course business completer program at Kenwood. Through the program, students earn CCBC credits, which may then be transferred to a four-year college. Underclassmen students also learned about the opportunities of dual enrollment while senior students learned more about the financial aid process.

On a tour of the campus, students stopped in several classrooms to talk with the CCBC instructors, including business professor Dr. Kipp Show who is teaching a new business course regarding Distribution. His course at CCBC is partnered with the Port of Baltimore, according to Ms. Page.

CCBC has partnered with the Port of Baltimore to provide a new program for a career in Transportation, Distribution, and Maritime Logistics. Students also visited the new Vet Assistant Lab, the Physicians’ Assistant Lab, and a recording studio for students.

BCPS students have the option for their senior year to enroll in the dual enrollment program. This program allows seniors to have a half day at Kenwood and a half day at CCBC. Once students have taken courses at CCBC their credits will transfer over to any university they transfer to either at the conclusion of high school or after their first two years at CCBC.

This is beneficial to seniors because as they enroll in their universities their basic credits will already be out of the way. If you’re still unsure about whether the dual enrollment program as a senior is for you or if CCBC is the right fit for you after your Kenwood graduation check out these benefits to taking classes at CCBC.

Gaining an experience of what college is like

Going into college can be stressful if one has no experience. So, when getting a head start as a senior in high school, students gain knowledge and experience of what the environment will be like. This will also give you experience acclimating yourself to a new environment while still enjoying the benefits of being close to home or still in the high school environment.

College at an affordable rate
Earning your basic credits at a community college can save you money. When enrolled in the dual enrollment program BCPS pays for 50 percent for your classes. With the new  Baltimore County and Maryland Community College Promise Program students who meet certain eligibility requirements can attend CCBC free of cost.

Getting a head start on college
Once all your basic courses are completed at CCBC, when you enter your 4-year college they will be out of the way and you will be able to begin working on the classes for your major.

Many people start their journeys to their careers at a local community college. Whether an underclassmen or an upperclassmen trying to decide what’s next as you finish high school or move on from high school be sure to check out the benefits of your local community college.
