The Summer Bridge Program at Central Piedmont Community College (CPCC) gives students an opportunity to successfully transition from high school to college in a closed, structured and supervised environment. The goal of this program is to make students more aware of what is expected of them in college and what will be expected of them in the real world. Classes are open for creative discussion with an expectation that diversity and the opinions of others will be respected.
