CPP offers more than 350 college-level courses to rising high school seniors with at least a 3.0 grade point average; highly qualified rising juniors may also apply. Classes range in length from three to eight weeks. Participants may earn a full year of college credit in biology, chemistry, physics or a foreign language through an intensive, three-course sequence. The intensive session, for which pupils must receive prior CPP approval, covers a year's worth of material in an eight-week program that meets for approximately three hours each weekday (plus lab time). Two-week noncredit IN FOCUS seminars cover such topics as the legal profession, global justice and environmental sustainability.
