Help Us Grow and Thrive
Support Our Mission
Our mission is to bring education to Cook County. The only way we can do that is to have excellent relationships with educators and educational institutions. We do not limit these relationships in any way. If a student would like to take a class from an accredited institution with which we do not have a relationship, we start a conversation. If a student needs some tutoring help with a subject for which we don’t have a tutor, we find one.
CCHE collaborates with accredited regional colleges and universities to bring degree programs to our residents, where we live and work. Certificate and degree programs include nursing, education, human services, business administration, and many, many more – about as individualized as our community! When we enroll a student in an accredited institution to attend school remotely, we do not receive any of the student’s tuition, nor do we charge a fee for our service. All of the tuition dollars go directly to the college. This arrangement allows CCHE objectivity when helping a student decide which program and institution fits their needs the best.
Coursework is delivered face-to-face with local instructors, online, or using Interactive Television – a real time classroom experience at our campus.
We offer FREE student support, which includes after-hour computer lab access, mentor support, course registration, financial aid, study skill workshops (writing & math in particular), and access to tuition scholarships.
