College in High School Courses

College in High School Courses


Our College in High School (CHS) partnership is with Westmoreland County Community College (WCCC).  Through the CHS program, students are able to earn college credits while completing courses with our own Leechburg High School faculty. 

Sophomores, juniors and seniors interested in enrolling must have a GPA of 2.5 or above to register for CHS classes.  Students are also responsible for paying the tuition for the classes; Westmoreland County residents will pay approximately $60 per credit ($180 for a three-credit class/$240 for a four-credit class); Armstrong County residents, $120 per credit ($360 for a three-credit class/$480 for a four-credit class).  The approximate costs are based on last year’s tuition rates and are subject to finalization through WCCC.  A limited number of scholarships are available through WCCC.  For those who have applied in the past, most have received at least a partial scholarship.


The list of all approved courses is below; however, course offerings are based on the academic schedule.  Not all approved courses will be offered in a given academic year.


These classes are designed to be taught at the college level.  If students enrolled in the eligible courses do not choose to receive the college credits, they do not have to pay for the college credits but may still remain in the class and receive local high school credit. 


Registration forms will be distributed at the beginning of the school year.  Updated list for 23-24 school year will be forthcoming.


This is an opportunity for families to save money on college tuition and for students to better prepare for college level coursework.   If you have questions, please contact Ms. Ann Fischer at 724-842-0571 Extension 500 or [email protected].
