The mission of the Hart District CCR Program is to cultivate the potential in our students by integrating rigorous academic classroom instruction with relevant, work-based experiences that guide, inspire, and empower in preparation for college and careers.
WHAT IS CCR?
The Hart District Career & College Readiness Courses (CCR) provide work-based learning and career guidance to Hart District students. Priority enrollment is given to high school students. Adults may enroll in some classes on a space-available basis; adult fees vary.
Students may enroll in CCR to learn entry-level employment skills, explore careers, and/or to prepare for advanced training programs.
CCR benefits include, but not limited to:
- Courses in a variety of occupations
- Unpaid Internships
