High School Dual Enrollment

We have several options for high school students to further their education and explore a career in the health sciences.

Experience college in a state-of-the-art learning environment while getting an early start on your future degree. Dual enrollment allows eligible high school juniors and seniors to enroll in general education courses while also completing high school requirements. To be successful, PA College expects selected high school students to be in good academic standing, self-motivated, and ready for an independent college experience.
