 is time for a GREAT BIG celebration!  Just released today -- 

CCTL is an "A" school with a grade of "96" and "exceeded growth!  

This is based on our 2018-19 school data.  We are the only high school to make an A and be in the 90s and exceed growth!  There are only 2 schools in I-SS with an A/90s/exceed -- CCTL Early College High School and Mt. Mourne IB Middle School! There are only 6 A schools!  There are only 4 schools in the 90s!   There are only 12 schools who exceeded growth!  There are 36 schools in I-SS.   Check out the first attachment for the above information.

 

- The first attachment shows the I-SS comparison of schools for letter grade, number grade, and not met/met/exceed growth.

-  The 2nd attachment shows I-SS comparison for all 2018-19 high school performance data including EOCs, ACT (97.9% met UNC minimum), a little ACT Workkeys, math rigor, grad rate (100%).

- The 3rd attachment shows EOC proficiency comparisons across I-SS high schools.  CCTL highest in the district and all over 90%!

 

 

 THANK YOU for all of your HARD WORK in 2018-19!!!

In September 2019, the American Institute for Research has released the findings from a study about the impact of Early Colleges (EC).  The study followed freshmen for 10 years after their enrollment into an early college in August 2005, 2006, and 2007.

Some of findings are:

- EC students were more likely than control students to complete a postsecondary degree each year between the fourth year of high school and 6 years after expected high school graduation.

- EC students were more likely than control students to complete a bachelor’s degree each year between the second and sixth years after expected high school graduation. 

- ** EC impacts on college enrollment and degree completion outcomes were similar for students with different family background characteristics. 

- ** High school experiences significantly explained the EC impact on enrollment in any type of institution. 

- College credit accrual during high school was the strongest mediator for degree completion outcomes, particularly bachelor’s degree completion.

We are most proud of the 2 "starred" findings:

** outcomes were similar for students with different family background characteristics

** their high school experiences significantly explained the early college impact:  high school experiences, as measured by instructional rigor, college-going culture, and student supports, explained approximately 30% the EC impact

We pride ourselves on serving our target population (80% first generation college, at-risk, or low SES), and on serving that population well through rigor, culture, and student supports!
