College in the Schools

  • This is an academic program of post-secondary credit eligible courses offered through the University of Minnesota that meet on Highland Senior High School’s campus.  Students who meet requirements may enroll in Chinese, which is a University of Minnesota course.  Upon successful completion of each course, university credits are earned.  These credits meet Highland Park’s Chinese requirement and also may be accepted as college credits at many additional institutions outside the University of Minnesota system.  This is open to seniors whose class rank is in the upper 25% of the class.

    College in the Schools delivers regular U of M credit courses to high-achieving high school students right in their own schools.  Selected high school teachers are appointed as affiliated U of M faculty and teach the U of M courses, supported by ongoing, discipline-specific professional development provided by U of M faculty and their sponsoring academic departments.
