Step 1: Attend an information session at CPCC. This is a new requirement from CPCC and must be taken in order for the college to recognize your application. It is a good way to take a comprehensive look at CCP and whether it is the right fit for you. Information Sessions are held every Monday at 4:30pm beginning September 12th through December 12th. Sessions are located in in Central High 331 (see map below). Parking is behind the Central High Building off Kings Drive. Parents are encouraged to attend!
Step 2: Complete the CCP online application. Complete the CCP online application using the following link: http://www.cpcc.edu/hsprograms/register-for-career-and-college-promise-cms-students. Once your application has been processed you will receive an admissions letter by email from firstname.lastname@example.org. This letter will include your Student ID Number (You will need that number when creating your CPCC login). If you do not receive an email with your Student ID within 3 business days of submission, please check your junk or spam email folder. If it is not there, contact:

Step 4: Activate your CPCC E-mail Address. CPCC provides an official student email account to every student. Your CPCC Login is also your CPCC Email. This CPCC email is the college's official means of communicating with students, the Cashiering Office, instructors, advisors, and for campus alerts. You shoulc check your CPCC student email every day.
Step 5: Complete the Ardrey Kell CCP Application. You can access the form at the link to the left, or see Mr. Knoblich for an application. Proof of your eligible test scores must be stapled to your AK CCP application. You may use a combination of scores to meet eligibility requirements. Test scores can be found in your Naviance Account. Look under the “About Me” tab and you will see the 'Test Scores' heading. You can print this off and highlight the scores that qualify you. If you are not eligible based on your scores you will need to take the CPCC Placement Test. (This can be done at a later date.)
Step 6: Return your CPP Application to Mr. Knoblich (Deadline is October 21, 2016).
