Off-Campus College Credit Programs
College credit programs exist for qualified high school students with the skill and motivation to pursue college level work. West Hartford Public Schools has a specific articulation program with Central Connecticut State University. Additionally, the University of Hartford, Capital Community and Goodwin Colleges each offer high school partnership programs. These programs permit qualified students to take one freshman level college course per semester through their college/university. College credit plus credit toward graduation from WHPS are granted for successful completion of the work. These courses are intended as enrichment courses for advanced students who are looking for additional challenge and background for later college work.
Courses taken “off-campus” may not be substituted for courses presently offered within the high schools. Tuition in most cases is free. However, students will be required to pay a registration fee plus the cost of the books and any lab fee and must arrange their own transportation. See your school counselor for details regarding these and other college programs.
