The program is unique in that it is located in a college campus and offers high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to earn their associate degree or MCSE/CNE certification (for IT students) at the same time as their high school diploma, with course registration and textbooks provided completely free of charge.
Admittance to CHS is based on a lottery of sorts. Potential candidates for the program are screened toward the end of their sophomore year to verify that they have an unweighted 3.2 GPA for the AA or a 2.5 GPA for either the IT or Allied Health programs. They must also have a minimum of eleven high school credits and be on track for graduation. Then, they are mailed an invitation to an information session and are given registration packets. There is then a random drawing from the registered students to choose the ones who will attend the following school year.
