High School Online Course Information

The High School College Education Online (CEO) program offers high school students the chance to enroll in online college courses taught by SUNY CCC faculty members. Unlike ACE courses, where students take classes with high school teachers, CEO courses involve learning directly from SUNY CCC faculty through the college's online platform. These courses enable students to explore additional subjects beyond what might be offered at their high school. CEO classes provide a platform for students to engage with college-level material in an online college class setting and receive instruction from college faculty members, enhancing their educational experience and expanding their academic horizons.

CEO courses are offered online asynchronously in the Fall, Spring, and Summer terms.

Navigating Online Learning in the CEO Program

Online courses within the High School College Education Online (CEO) program are delivered through SUNY CCC’s online management system, Brightspace. To participate in these courses, students must have access to a computer and the internet. While some high schools may allocate dedicated class time for students to work on their online courses, this arrangement varies depending on the school and the student’s schedule.

Importantly, CEO courses are structured as asynchronous, meaning that students have the flexibility to access course materials and complete assignments at their own pace, without being constrained by specific class times. This setup accommodates diverse schedules and learning preferences, allowing students to engage with course content at any time of the day or night.
