College and Career Readiness Program

Wilson Community College’s College and Career Readiness (CCR) program mission is to provide adult students and teenagers (ages 16 and 17) with the academic knowledge and skills necessary to obtain a secondary degree credential, to become workforce ready or college ready, involved in their children’s education, and/or more self-sufficient.

This program prepares students for college readiness programs and/or job training opportunities by providing basic to advanced reading, math, language, writing, and communications studies in three (3) programs of study; Adult Basic Education, Adult Secondary Education (includes adult high school and GED), and English Language Program (ELP). The learning objectives of the three (3) studies are carried out in four (4) pathways: Cooperative Pathway, Employment Pathway, Occupational Career Pathway; and Pre-College Pathway. Admission into all pathway programs is determined by an assessment of the student’s academic skills. Anyone 16 years of age or older, who has been out of school at least six months and meets the admissions requirement, may enroll in any pathway program.
