Concurrent Credit Program – Now with Northwest University

Cedar Park Christian Schools and Northwest University have teamed together to offer concurrent credit to our students. Cedar Park Christian School will be the pilot school for NU’s venture into offering concurrent credit to high school students. Concurrent Credit Programs (CCP) allow students the opportunity to earn credit while attending their regular high school classes.

CPCS has offered concurrent credit to its seniors in English the past 3 years through Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho. Concurrent credit is the best option for our school when it comes to programs like Running Start, AP or IB. We maintain control of our distinctly Christian curriculum, while keeping students on campus and allowing them the opportunity to earn college credit. As of now, a current junior has the opportunity to graduate from CPCS (as a senior) with 21 semester credits of college level courses on an accredited 4-year college transcript. These concurrent credits through NU taken on our campus are a fraction of the University price for our families.

With Northwest University, the MLT Campus offers the following courses concurrently:

  • US History (3 credits)
  • Chemistry (4 credits)
  • Anatomy & Physiology (8 credits)
