The High School/College Internship Program (HI/SCIP) has afforded hundreds of academically competent students an alternative learning style since 1975. Specifically, HI/SCIP fills an academic void by offering seniors the opportunity to maintain their high school status while enrolled part-time or full-time at a participating university. As well as making a college adjustment, many seniors are advanced college freshmen by the time they graduate.
The broad goals of the program are:
- to offer a more flexible educational continuum as an alternative to the traditional pattern of an eight through twelve grade, and
- to provide high school students who have an accelerated mastery of competencies by the junior year to enroll in freshmen college level courses.
Applications are available in your school counselor’s office during the spring of your Junior year.
