The Department of Higher Education Partnerships was created in collaboration with our local colleges and universities. Columbus City Schools and local colleges and universities have had a long-standing informal partnership to increase student achievement and to support staff development. The Department of Higher Education Partnerships works closely with our partners and district staff to implement and support state initiatives that can help students pursue their postsecondary educational and career goals.

  • Our Mission

    In order to ensure that every student is able to pursue postsecondary education and/or their chosen career goals, the Department of Higher Education Partnerships believes that rigorous course options should be accessible and equitably offered to all students in our district.  Our department encourages students to complete these rigorous courses that can be used towards graduation requirements and/or a jumpstart to a college education, entrepreneurship, career exploration, or the military. 

  • Our Vision

    Higher Education Partnerships is committed to providing Columbus City Schools students, families, and communities with equitable access and choices for rigorous course options and college and career readiness through exposure, encouragement, and support.
