Enroll in one of Community College of Beaver County's High School Academies!

Enroll in one of Community College of Beaver County's High School Academies to jump-start your college education and discover the career that’s meant for you.

CCBC’s High School Academies are providing Western Pennsylvania’s young people with high-impact educational experiences to prepare them for careers that address priority workforce needs of the region. Launched in 2015 with the Aviation Academy, the CCBC High School Academy program now educates more than 170 students from 40 school districts throughout Western Pennsylvania through an innovative dual enrollment model in which students have the opportunity to explore careers in areas of workforce priority for the region while receiving hands-on instruction from college faculty in labs and classroom environments that stimulate critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Students who devote two years of study to the program will have the opportunity to graduate from high school having completed up to one year of credits toward CCBC’s associate degree programs, or they can transfer the credits to other colleges and universities. Through partnerships with more than 600 four-year college programs nationally, many academy graduates can complete a bachelor degree in three years or less.
