College Level Courses
Academically capable students may take college level courses for both high school and/or college credit. Several local colleges have agreed to permit qualified students to enroll in courses during the academic year and/or during summer school sessions. The College in the High School Program (offered through a partnership with Harrisburg Area Community College HACC) enables qualified high school students to enroll in college level courses at their high school during the regular school day. DHS offers College in the High School courses in English and Spanish. Students earn concurrent high school and college credit for the same course. Courses are taught by high school teachers who qualify as adjunct college faculty members. The cost of College in the High School courses is a one-time application fee and a reduced rate for the course. Recommendations by the school counseling office and administration are necessary for participation.
