In this program, we partner with regional high schools to offer entry-level college courses in the high schools. That means you can earn college credit and become familiar with college-level academics and the university environment while you're still in high school.
College in the High School courses are taught by certified high school teachers who have a master’s degree or the master’s equivalency and have been certified as adjunct faculty members by the university. High school teachers work throughout the year with Pitt-Bradford faculty member liaisons, whether it is course-specific or about student achievement in general.
The high school teachers give grades for the courses, which are based on assignments, quizzes and tests determined by both faculty members, and also by a final exam that is provided by the university. During the 2013-14 academic year, more than 800 students participated in the program.
If you are a CHS student and eventually enroll at Pitt-Bradford, you may be eligible to receive a $1,000 scholarship a year for up to four years. To be eligible, you would need at least a 2.5 GPA from your Pitt-Bradford and high school courses.
But there's more.
If you have a qualifying SAT/ACT score and high school GPA, you also could receive a Panther Scholarship, and that $1,000 would be added it. That means that if you live on campus, you could receive $6,500 each year for four years for a total of $26,000. If you commute, you could receive $2,000 each year for four years for a total of $8,000.
