High School Academy – Benefits
High School Academy Benefits
Students of Post University High School Academy will:
- Jumpstart collegiate careers. Enroll in dual-enrollment undergraduate-level courses with peers from all over the country online, engage in college-level coursework right in their own high schools, and/or gain collegiate experience on Post’s Waterbury, CT, campus.
- Explore academic interests. Through dual-credit classes, students are able to explore career fields and areas of study that interest them such as: Paralegal, Marketing, Management, Criminal Justice, Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM), Early Childhood, and Equine Studies just to name a few.
- Earn significant college credits. Credits earned through HSA transfer directly into a certificate or degree program at Post University.
- Realize significant savings. Earning college credit while in high school is like earning a scholarship. Credits earned now mean less tuition later to complete a degree or certificate program.
- Save even more when they continue studies at Post. Students who continue undergraduate studies after high school at Post University full-time — either at the Main Campus or through our online learning options—will be eligible for a 20% tuition reduction.*
- “Success breeds success.” By experiencing success now in a rigorous college course, students will have created a blueprint for success they can carry with them throughout their college degree.
- Real college studies, real college students. HSA students are a part of the Post University community. As such, they receive the same benefits of fully admitted students, including personal academic advisors, access to student services, 24/7 tutoring support, invitations to special events, discounts at local establishments, and University swag.
* The 20% tuition reduction for students who persist through online studies at Post University cannot be combined with any other Post scholarships. However, this tuition reduction can be combined with Post scholarships for main campus students. Plus, the 20% tuition reduction can with scholarships and grants provided by third parties, such as the US Department of Education for online or main campus students. Students may be eligible for more generous scholarship opportunities, so be sure to check our Scholarships, Grants, & Other Aid page when the time comes.
