College and Career Ready Graduates (CCRG)
The General Assembly passed legislation that required the NC Community College System in partnership with the State Board of Education to implement College & Career Ready Graduates or CCRG. This program provides instruction in foundational skills for mathematics and English that are critical for success in collegiate courses. By providing the opportunity to meet this requirement in high school, students can be more prepared to be successful in community college courses. High school students are identified to participate based primarily on their unweighted grade point average (GPA) at the end of their junior year. There are other data points that can help students to meet this requirement such as Math 3 EOC score, ACT score, SAT score, Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate (IB) testing scores, along with some other measure.
By completing the CCRG requirement, students can increase their preparedness for next learning as well as save money on courses at the community college. Completing these courses in high school can save students time and money when they begin at a community college by eliminating the need for additional support or preparation classes there. This material will also help prepare students for university placement tests, military technical schools, and career math and English needs.
