The Career and College Promise (CCP) Program allows qualified students to be enrolled in high school and earn tuition free college credits at the same time. Students can earn college credit that can be applied to an Associates in Arts or Associates in Science that can then transfer to all public and many private colleges or universities. Students can also choose to earn credits in the many technical careers offered at CVCC. CVCC offers College and Career Promise classes at all local high schools tuition free. Students take classes on their high school campus during their first period block.

North Carolina high school programs formally known as Huskins, Learn and Earn Online(LEO, and Dual Enrollment are now combined into one--Career and College Promise (CCP).
