Community College Credit
Through the 21st Century Program, students have the ability to take classes after school for college credit free of charge. By taking advantage of this program, 21st Century will front the costs that it takes for you to enroll and you will never personally be billed.

The process to enroll is simple! Staunton River High School has a working agreement with Central Virginia Community College where students can apply for Admission, and take select courses locally at the school, or designated location.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Where do I apply? Students can apply for Admission to CVCC online for free at the following link: https://www.cvcc.vccs.edu/. The application only takes 5-10 minutes, and remember to write down your student ID number after your application is complete. You will need this for your placement tests. 

What are placement tests? Placement tests are required for all students to complete prior to ever enrolling in a CVCC course. There is a Math placement test, and an English placement test. Each test takes roughly 1.5 hours to complete, and can be taken at CVCC Bedford without appointment. Email kelsey.howes@bedford.k12.va.us if you cannot make it to the CVCC Bedford campus, and she will help you make arrangements that work best for you. 

What if I'm under 18? Students under 18 need to be sure that they complete the Parental Permission Form available on CVCCs website, or by seeing Mrs. Howes for a paper copy. 

How can I make sure I'm enrolled in the course? Once your placement tests are complete, provide a copy of your testing to Mrs. Howes and she will manually register you for the course. Since these courses are only available to SRHS students, manual registration this way is required. Mrs. Howes will also give you an enrollment form for 21st Century programming, which will allow us to cover the cost of getting you enrolled and will make sure that you pay nothing for the courses taken. 

What kind of courses can I take through 21st Century? Course offerings vary per semester, and are based on what instructors we have that have offered up their time. If a course is currently offered as a dual enrollment course during the day, 21st Century will not be able to sponsor this course after school. This is in your best interest, because any courses taken during the day classified as "dual enrollment" count for both high school and college credit.
