Team-Teaching Helps Students Find Success

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. 

Lacking a high school diploma? Students pursuing programs with the Smart Start option can enroll in college-level classes and receive funding to pay for classes. Ask about how Ability to Benefit can help you. Keep Credits earned in Smart Start apply towards certificates and degrees.
