College in High School
by Trinity Gruenberg
High school curriculums continue to change and progress with academics, the way classes are taught and earning college credits. Revisions have been made through the years.
Over the past several years, more students are taking college level classes in high school, online or even at a college campus to prepare for college while saving money in the process. Some ambitious students even earn a degree before finishing high school.
There are mainly two ways high schoolers earn college credits: College in Schools (CIS) also known as Concurrent Enrollment courses (CE) or Post Secondary Education Option (PSEO).
CIS classes are taken in the high school and taught by the high school teacher. The credit is earned through completion of the course. PSEO classes are taught by college professors online or at the college campus.
The availability of CIS classes depends on the teacher having a Master’s Degree in that field. . . .
