The Penn Highlands Academy Pathway is for students that want to earn college credits through their high school. Students enrolled within the Academy can earn a maximum of 28 college credits. High school students will be able to take dual enrollment/ACE courses at discounted rates at their high school and use them toward the completion of an associate’s degree at Penn Highlands after high school graduation.
The Academy follows a 3+1 approach, enabling students to complete their associate’s degree in one year following graduation. Students will also be assigned to an academic advisor which will assist in creating an customized educational plan. An academic advisor will help guide students through course selection, career exploration, and major selection.
- Students must enroll during their freshman, sophomore, junior, or senior years in high school.
- Students must attach a high school transcript with their online application listing a minimum GPA of 2.5 or higher in order to participate.
