College in the High School (CHS) is an academically rigorous program option for motivated students seeking an intellectual challenge within a supportive high school environment. The courses are taught by Central Dauphin School District teachers who have been approved and trained by the University of Pittsburgh and offer students the opportunity to earn both high school and University of Pittsburgh credit in courses taught right in their classroom. The fee for this course is set by the University of Pittsburgh. Please contact the Guidance Office at your high school for further information.
