FAQ – COH
What makes Central Campus courses different from courses in my home school?
Here at CC, there are classes that are not offered at my home school. The courses here are also longer, but more beneficial in order to get things accomplished. Also, some of the classes allow you to step out of the classroom atmosphere and into the ‘real world’ work atmosphere.

Central Campus courses provide more practical learning than my home school. All courses are geared towards helping students excel at things they enjoy and how to utilize new skills in a potential career. At my home school, you take classes for grades and to graduate; at Central Campus, you go to classes to learn things you are able to use later in life.”

Central Campus gives a unique opportunity that I would never have received at my home school. I get real life experiences and get to learn more about my future career goal; I wouldn’t have learned any of that by just sitting in a classroom. Central Campus gave me the opportunity to find my passion and give me guidance on how to fulfill my dreams.

What will I do in courses at Central Campus?
COH is a program for any student who believes they are interested in healthcare or just want to see what it’s about. Students will hear lectures on the fundamentals of healthcare, but also have the privilege of going out to local hospitals and clinics to not only see what they have learned in action, but to see what different types of medicine there are and how people interact with one another”.

In Career Opportunities in Health, I get to go to the hospital 3 times a week instead of sitting in a classroom. I observe healthcare professionals and learn more about the medical world than I could have imagined. Mrs. Eppert makes our time at the hospital be the best it can be by arranging observation experiences within our field of interest.

In COH, we have class time and hospital time; we observe in local hospitals & clinics 3 days a week. What you do in your CC course depends on what type of course you take.”
