Central Lakes College partners with several high schools in central Minnesota to offer college courses to
high school students while they are in high school and on the high school campus. In recent years, the
number of students taking College in the Schools (CIS) courses has increased. However, a trend exists
that demonstrates a decreasing number of students who take CIS courses attend Central Lakes College
after completing high school. This focus group study is designed to develop a deeper understanding of
CIS student experience so that CIS program developers can become informed with regard to positive
and negative student experiences as well as student career and academic plans post graduation.
Prepared in partnership with Central Lakes College by the Community Assistantship Program (CAP), which is administered by the Center for Urban and Regional Affairs (CURA) at the University of Minnesota.
