College in High School Program

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 35 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 world-class 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. 

Because College in High School courses vary by high school, please consult your guidance office for specific CHS classes available at your high school. If you are interested in bringing CHS to your school, contact CHS at 412-624-6828.
