Dual Enrollment  (CCAP & Non-CCAP) and High School Partnership-Chaffey College

 

Students can start their college journey while in high school by attending Chaffey College courses.  This means you are enrolled as BOTH a college student and a high school student at the same time. In partnership with Chaffey College, there are CCAP and Non-CCAP Dual Enrollment Courses. 

CCAP stands for College and Careers Access Pathways Dual Enrollment Courses. These are offered during the school day on our District campuses.

Non-CCAP Dual Enrollment Courses are offered through the HSP and Non-HSP program and take place either online or in-person outside of the student’s regular school day. See more about the HSP and Non-HSP programs below.
