Virginia Western’s Community College Access Program (CCAP) is making college possible this fall for 440 recent graduates of Roanoke Valley high schools.
The Virginia Western Community College Educational Foundation, a nonprofit affiliated with Virginia Western Community College, raises support for CCAP through a public/private funding partnership. CCAP provides up to three years of tuition for high school graduates who meet program requirements, as funding allows. Since 2008, more than 2,800 Roanoke Valley students have participated in the program.
Parents and students interested in learning more CCAP are invited to attend any of the public information sessions planned through January 2020. The 2020 CCAP application period opened October 1 and closes February 1, 2020. Meetings will be held in Whitman Theater on the VWCC campus from 6:30-8 p.m. November 7, December 10 and January 9.
