University of Pittsburgh Dual Enrollment

  • Radnor Township School District invests in excellence and that always begins with our students. Over the past three years the RHS administrative team, in collaboration with the curriculum office, has worked to establish a relationship with the University of Pittsburgh. Radnor High School and the University of Pittsburgh will partner again in the 2020-21 school year to provide an opportunity for students enrolled in Linear Algebra to earn college credit.

    College in High School (CHS) offers regional high school students the opportunity to earn both high school and University of Pittsburgh credit in courses taught right in their classrooms. College in High School is an academically rigorous program for motivated students seeking an intellectual challenge within a supportive high school environment.

    For 36 years, College in High School’s success has stemmed from close collaboration between the Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences and regional high schools. CHS-certified high school teachers work closely with Pitt’s worldclass faculty to teach a high school course that is also a University of Pittsburgh course. Students use college-level textbooks, take college-level exams, and upon successful completion of the class, earn college credit that is recorded on an official University of Pittsburgh transcript.
