College in the High School (CHS)
College in the High School (CHS) programs provide college-level academic courses to 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students (by law, students must be in at least 10th grade to earn college credit). Courses are taught at the high school, by high school teachers, with college curriculum, college textbooks, and oversight by college faculty and staff. These are courses that carry a “(C)” designation after the course title. Students pay tuition and some state subsidies are available for rural and small schools and for low-income students.
