Earn College Credit in High School

These are the current ways students can earn college credit while in high school:

  • Dual Enrollment For 11th and 12th graders at a local college for credit. HACC, Millersville, Lancaster Bible College, PA College of Health Sciences and Seton Hill are the schools that most students attend.
  • Early Enrollment at Thaddeus Stevens Enroll in Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology as a 12th grader and complete your first year of college while you are a senior in high school.  Students attend at Thaddeus Stevens, with a 50% tuition rate and financial aid. Apply during your junior year for this senior year opportunity on the Thaddeus Stevens Website
  • Lancaster Career and Technical Center Several of the CTC programs partner with HACC to offer dual enrollment credit. Other programs offer transferable classes to other technical colleges and universities. Applications for CTC are due in December the year before you want to attend.
  • Advanced Placement Courses There are about 16 AP courses for 11th and 12th grade students at Penn Manor (10th grade students can take these courses with teacher approval). To earn the college credit, students must take the College Board exam at the end of the course. Scored out of 5 points, most colleges take scores of 3 and higher.
