The High School Contract program is an agreement between CVTC and your school that allows your students to earn their HSED at CVTC in lieu of attending high school. If you are a high school principal or counselor and have a student at your school that is at risk of not graduating, the CVTC High School Contract program might be a good alternative.
Your student must attend one of our orientation sessions to learn more about the program. Students under 18 must have a parent or guardian present.
A contract must be setup between the high school and CVTC on behalf of the student.
Students must attend 15 hours per week until they are put on reduced contract.
Please Note: The class is now held virtually, which will require students have an in-home internet connection.

Disability accommodations are provided through CVTC's Diversity Resources department. Our staff will work with the student and the appropriate stakeholders to provide reasonable and appropriate accommodations to eligible students with documented disabilities. Accommodations may include classroom accommodations, testing accommodations, assistive technology, adaptive equipment, interpreting, and/or real-time captioning. To receive academic accommodations, students may elect to have a medical provider complete the "Documentation of Disability" form. In addition, the use of a current IEP or 504 plan will serve as appropriate documentation, in lieu of the "Documentation of Disability" form.
Questions? If you have questions about academic accommodations for students, please contact our staff at email@example.com or at 715-833-6234.
High School Academies are a series of courses that lead into a degree program. Academies are designed to meet high school needs with broad goals of offering program exploration, a recognized industry credential or embedded technical diploma, or up to a full semester of an associate degree program. High School Academies can be offered at a CVTC campus or at the high school location. Academies may include any combination of Transcripted Credit or Youth Options course sections.
Transcripted credit courses are CVTC course that are taught in high schools by certified high school teachers using the technical college competencies and grading scale. Students who choose to enroll in a transcripted credit course will earn both high school and college credit simultaneously.
You can become certified to teach Transcripted Credit courses in your high school if you meet both the current DPI licensing requirements and the certification requirements of the Higher Learning Commission and Wisconsin Technical College System.
Advanced Standing agreements allow students to request credit for certain courses that have an articulation agreement established. High School courses must have an 80% competency match and students must receive a "B" or better in order to receive credit.

Student receives high school credit
