Collegiate High Preview Night Is This Thursday

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Hamilton County Collegiate High Preview Night will be this Thursday at 6 p.m. in the OMN Building (Albright Omniplex Building) at Chattanooga State Technical Community College.

Collegiate High offers students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and an associate’s degree.

Even if students haven’t earned an associate’s degree by high school graduation, students have earned college credit hours toward a college major of their choice. The Collegiate High supports student achievement by providing students with the knowledge and skills necessary for postsecondary success.

According to representatives, "Collegiate High students are some of the most nationally sought-after students.  Our graduates continue their education in colleges and universities across the nation.  Ninety percent of Collegiate High graduates transfer to a four-year college or university. Additionally, our ACT composite continues to rank above the state and national average."
