The Ruettgers Enrichment Program was founded in 1999 by Maureen and Michael Ruettgers.
Mr. and Mrs. Ruettgers funded this endowment because they felt strongly that their three children had flourished at CCHS specifically because of the caliber of the faculty and the degree to which each of their children had been inspired in their respective classrooms.
A CCHS faculty member offers one seminar each semester on a subject not covered in the traditional CCHS curriculum, and about which they have great expertise.
Students must apply for enrollment. Accepted students earn 2.5 credits for attendance; the course meets for twelve 90-minute classes outside of the school day.
