We believe in offering our high school students a variety of opportunities to challenge themselves academically and pursue a college education. This is why we are so pleased to participate in the Ohio Department of Education’s College Credit Plus (CCP) program for students in our Upper School. This dual-enrollment program is designed to allow Ohio high school students the chance to earn both college and high school credits at the same time. While it is not guaranteed, many colleges will accept these credits toward your student’s undergraduate degree.
Our Partnership With Malone University

College Credit Plus
benefits for students:

At MCA, we offer...
CCP courses in partnership with Malone University in Canton. As a private Christian liberal arts college, Malone University is an ideal partner to MCA and offers a similar learning environment to students should they choose to complete their coursework on campus. Malone University believes, as we do, “Our faith is more than just our heritage…it is how we learn and live.” Every student is encouraged to pursue Jesus Christ through their learning experiences.

To participate in...
College Credit Plus courses, MCA students must first gain admission to Malone University. Select students may also be eligible for state funding to cover the cost of tuition through the program. It should be noted that there are increased responsibilities involved in the CCP program for both students and their parents—communication will be key. For example, a college professor is not required to notify a parent if a student misses an assignment deadline or fails a test. Grading periods and school calendars may be different from MCA and will require the student to manage their personal schedule with care. There are more details about the CCP program in our academic catalog.
