Take college classes while in high school
The Charleston Southern University Scholars Academy is a dual enrollment program for high school juniors and seniors who want to earn college credit while still in high school. These classes are academically challenging and taught from a Christian perspective.
High school students who successfully complete a dual enrollment class will earn three credits toward their college degree. The more classes a student takes while in high school, the sooner he or she will complete college. Students may also apply the courses earned to the college of their choice, but students should contact the registrar of the college to assure application of credits.
CSU Scholars Academy participants will be awarded a tuition discount of $125 for each course taken in the Scholars Academy (up to four courses, max $500) during their freshman year at CSU. This discount is only available if the student enrolls as a full-time, undergraduate student following their high school graduation.
All courses are taught online, with some available in the traditional classroom setting on the CSU campus.
