Private School Admissions

To be eligible to participate in the CCP program, a Letter of Intent must be submitted to the Ohio Department of Education no later than April 1st of the year a student intends to participate. Submitting the letter of intent reserves funding (though funding is not guaranteed for private school students) but does not require the student to participate in the program.

Private school students residing in the state of Ohio should complete an application to the Cincinnati Christian University Bridge Academy in the following order:

  1. Submit an online Application, located HERE. The $40 fee is not required for Bridge Academy applicants.
  2. Request that an official middle school/ high school transcript be sent from your counselor to Cincinnati Christian University. A student must have a 2.5 (unweighted) GPA to satisfy the admissions requirement at CCU.
  3. Send a copy of ACT or SAT scores to Cincinnati Christian university. Qualifying scores are as follows:
    -ACT: 19 Composite with a minimum of 18 in the English portion and 19 in Math
    -SAT: 1210 Composite with a minimum of 430 in Writing
    -Accuplacer: 170 Composite in Reading & Sentence Skills with an 85-baseline score in Sentence Skills and a 75-baseline score in Math
    -Students who have not taken a standardized test can arrange to take the Accuplacer at CCU or at an approved partner school location. Students may only take the Accuplacer twice in one calendar year.
  4. Students should have their counselor submit a Letter of Recommendation to Cincinnati Christian University. Counselors should send a letter on official school letterhead for individual students, or can contact the Bridge Academy Coordinator to receive a Counselor Recommendation form for individuals and groups of students.
