Current High School Students/College Acceleration Program (C.A.P.)
applications are due!
The College Acceleration Program (CAP) provides students with the opportunity to take college level courses for credit while enrolled in their current high school classes. Students in this program can begin working on their associate degree while simultaneously completing their high school coursework. Courses are taught by certified high school teachers who have been approved as Burlington County College adjunct faculty. Participating high schools, in cooperation with BCC administration and faculty, determine the courses, taught in the high school, that qualify for this program. To be eligible, a high school student must be approved by his/her guidance counselor or high school principal to enroll in a CAP class offered at their high school. Every public high school in the county is involved in this program and each school has different courses approved by BCC as equal to a BCC course. For further information, students should contact their high school guidance office and/or guidance counselor. Read more...
