College Credits at CDHS

Students at Cairo-Durham High School can earn college credits through the “College-in-the-High-School” program. This program allows CDHS students to gain college credit for work completed through Columbia-Greene Community College, all without having to leave the CDHS campus.

The C-GCC College-in-the-High-School program provides students with college-level coursework experience and an alternative to Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Credits earned are typically transferrable to other higher education institutions that accept coursework from C-GCC.
