I-BEST is a nationally recognized team-teaching model. At CCS I-BEST is called Smart Start because this approach is anchored in student success with a goal to provide students with the best start possible.
Students enrolled in programs that offer the Smart Start option receive twice the instruction and support all designed to provide a strong foundation for everyone! Some programs offer up to 5 additional hours of more instructional support. There is no additional cost for enrollment.
