BH-BL students can earn college credits in high school

For many years, BH-BL High School has offered its students a wide variety of Advanced Placement and College in High School courses that allow them to earn college credit while still attending high school. The convenience and outcome of this opportunity has made it very popular and in high demand.

In the 2016-17 school year, BH-BL High School took this opportunity one step further when it launched the early college program, BH-BL+1. This program, which is being piloted through Schenectady County Community College (SCCC), offers students the possibility of dual enrollment to earn an entire year of college credits in a general area of interest, while still earning a high school diploma.

The vision for BH-BL+1 is for students to graduate from high school with a SUNY transcript that could qualify them to enter college as a sophomore.

Below are three potential programs of study at SCCC and the courses needed to complete the first year of college. After completing these courses at BH-BL, students can enter SCCC and complete an associate's degree in one year or directly transfer the courses into another college or university.

To learn more about the possibilities through BH-BL+1, please contact your guidance counselor.
