 Who can participate in CCP?
Any student, at their parents’ counsel, are permitted to enroll in CCP coursework; however, the credits required to graduate from Westside Christian Academy are part of a carefully planned, intentional progression consistent with Classical Christian Education. For that reason, core coursework will not be substituted by college-level courses in the same subject area; however, students may earn elective WCA credits by taking CCP courses. Exceptions may apply.

  • Personal Finance
