The West Shore School District participates in the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s dual enrollment program. Dual enrollment programs allow high school seniors to concurrently enroll in post-secondary courses while still in high school and to receive both high school and college credit for that coursework.
This program is designed to give students greater opportunities to complete high school with adequate preparation for college and careers. Students will experience increased academic rigor as well as prepare for a more successful transition into the culture and expectations present in post-secondary institutions.
A certificate of residency through the West Shore School District allows students a reduced tuition rate at Harrisburg Area Community College. For more information on the tuition costs associated with this program, please refer to the sponsoring school district tuition rate published by HACC. All tuition, books, and additional fees are the responsibility of the student. Parents should be prepared to pay for all of the costs as billed from the college or university. All students and parents should note that in order to participate in this program the student must successfully pass the college entrance requirements as part of the program.
For more information on dual enrollment, please contact the guidance office.
