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
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 2017-18
academic year, more than 1000 students are participating in the program.
If you choose to enroll at Pitt-Bradford as a freshman, your credits from the College in the High School courses are automatically applied toward your General Education requirements. In addition, if you have qualifying SAT/ACT scores and a qualifying high school GPA, and if you live on campus, you could also receive a Panther Scholarship of $5,500 to $7,500 each year for a total of $22,000 to $30,000. If you have qualifying SAT/ACT scores and a qualifying high school GPA and are a new commuter student, you can receive $1000 per year for a total of $4,000.Schools participating in the CHS program:
