The Graphic Communications program at Lorain High School prepares students for entry into a Interactive Digital Media program at Lorain County Community College. Students who successfully complete the Graphic Communications program are eligible to earn college credit, while in high school, that apply seamlessly into a post-secondary program of interest in a Graphic Design or Arts pathway.


College Credit Opportunities 

Students in Tech Prep classes or programs are better prepared for college, have fewer tuition expenses, and reduce the amount of time it takes to earn their college degree. Students can earn college credit through three options: Bi-Lateral Articulation Agreements (Tech Prep); Ohio Career Technical Transfer Credit (CTAG); and College Credit Plus (CCP). If you complete both years of your College Tech Prep program, you could be eligible to earn the credits listed below:

Tech Prep Credit

  • ARTS 261, Graphic Design I (3), portfolio review credit
  • ARTS 262, Graphic Design II (3), portfolio review credit


CTAG Credit

  • ARTS 271 / CGSD 271, Digital Imaging (3) CTAG: CTVDI003

College Credit Plus 

Students can choose to take College Credit Plus courses at Lorain High School Titan College, LCCC’s main campus and outreach centers; or online. To create your schedule, talk to your high school guidance counselor or schedule a meeting with your CCP adviser.
