Bucyrus senior gets head start with College Credit Plus program

Alexis Dye, a member of the Class of 2019, enrolled in the College Credit Plus program to give her a head start on her Pre-Law studies at Ursuline College after she receives her diploma May 26.

Alexis earned a total of 18 college credit hours, saving her family $9,000 in college tuition costs when she enrolls at Ursuline in the fall.

“I enrolled in the College Credit Plus program to get a head start on college,” she said. “I wanted to earn college credits for free and help my family offset the tuition costs for college.”

Alexis was involved in a variety of activities during her time at BHS. She was a Varsity Cheerleader during the football and basketball seasons and was a member of Girls Boosters and Science Club.

“Alexis is one of the most hard-working, determined and dedicated students I have ever met,” Bucyrus Secondary School Principal Dr. Mark Burke said. “Alexis has a very clear picture of what her future holds and she knew that CCP classes would be a great first step in her college journey.”

The College Credit Plus program at Bucyrus High School helped prepare Alexis for college, and she offers the following advice for BHS students and families who are considering the program.

“I would definitely recommend the CCP program at Bucyrus because it prepares you for college,” she said. “And it will help you save money on your college tuition costs.”

The Bucyrus High School Class of 2019 earned a total of 302 college credit hours, saving their families $151,000 in college tuition costs.

The 150th Bucyrus High School Commencement will begin at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, May 26 and can be viewed live on the district’s YouTube channel at youtube.bucyrusschools.org.
