Penn Highlands SquarePennsylvania Highlands Community College believes that everyone should have the opportunity to attend college.  They also recognize the strain that such a financial burden can have on individuals and families.

Already known for providing high quality and affordable educational opportunities Penn Highlands will take it one step further this summer by offering college preparatory classes with a special summer rate of $39 per credit.  Three credit courses will cost $117 with no fees added.

The college prep classes being offered include:

  • Basic Algebra
  • Basic English
  • Basic Math
  • Critical College Reading
  • Introduction to Composition
  • Pre-Algebra

If students are unsure of which college prep courses to take, the College has a placement testing system that will help determine what courses will help them follow a comfortable and proper path.

These college prep courses will be offered at each of the College’s five locations: Richland, Ebensburg, Huntingdon, Somerset, and our new Blair facility. The courses will begin mid-summer, with dates varying by location, and will wrap up the week of August 12th. The timing of these courses will lead students right into the fall academic semester, giving them a strong academic foundation to build on.
