Graduation is at least three weeks away for most Charlotte-Mecklenburg seniors, but about 100 who’ve been taking classes on Central Piedmont Community College campuses collected their diplomas this week.
Cato and Levine middle college high schools, where 11th- and 12th-graders take college and high school courses, follow the CPCC calendar, which ends earlier than most of CMS. Plans called for 38 Cato graduates and 60 Levine graduates to collect their diplomas at Ovens Auditorium Thursday.
Fifteen students earned enough tuition-free college credits to get an associate’s degree as well as a high school diploma.
CMS has also opened a small high school at UNC Charlotte, but it doesn’t have a graduating class yet.
