College in the High School 

A Partnership Between Harrisburg Area Community College & Central York High School


Central York High School has partnered with Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) to offer the HACC "College in the High School (CHS) Program" to Central York School District students.

How It Works
  • HACC's CHS Program enables qualified high school students to enroll in college-level courses at their high school during the regular school day.
  • CHS students earn concurrent high school and college credit.
  • Students earn college credits at a greatly reduced cost of approximately $90/CHS course.
  • Central York High School faculty members who qualify as HACC adjunct faculty members will teach the selected CHS courses each semester.
  • Central York High School is offering one CHS course during the second semester of the 2012-2013 school year, and plans to expand the course offerings in the 2013-2014 school year.
Benefits
  • Courses are offered at the high school, so students do not have to travel to a HACC campus.
  • Courses are offered at a significantly reduced tuition rate - $90/course.
  • CHS courses award college credit which have a high rate of successful transfer to other colleges and universities.
  • Completing college-bound credits gives students a head start and eases the transition from high school to college.
  • CHS credits have a high rate of successful transfer to colleges and universities within the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. If you have an inquiry about a specific college or university, please speak to your guidance counselor for further information.
  • HACC has more than 100 formal agreements with four-year colleges and universities that allow students to register simultaneously with HACC and the four-year colleges and universities to which they will transfer.
How to Enroll
  • Students interested in enrolling in a CHS program for the 2013-2014 school year should contact their High School Guidance Counselor for more information.
  • Some pre-requisite work and/or successful performance on placement tests is required to enroll in certain courses.
