College in High School

Collage of Colleges

College in High School (CHS) provides high school students with the chance to earn both high school and college credit in courses delivered by Penn Hills High School teachers.

This program allows students to participate in college-level learning experiences before graduating from high school, while also assisting them in establishing a collegiate transcript for future transfer credits. Students are not obligated to take the course for academic credit unless they choose to do so.  

The following are courses offered for CHS credit. Please note that each college or university requires their own registration and independent payment procedures. Please talk with your teacher for more information. All courses listed below equate with three (3) collegiate credits unless otherwise noted.

In addition to the course offered through the universities below, Penn Hills School District will continue to seek partnerships with other colleges and universities to provide opportunities for our students to earn college credit.  

Should you have questions about whether or not a college or university will accept these credits toward the completion of a Bachelor’s degree, please contact the specific Admissions Office directly.
