PENN COLLEGE NOW
Penn College NOW is a dual enrollment program which allows students to take college courses while in high school. The courses are taught at the high school by Penn College approved high school instructors. The courses follow the college syllabus and require college approved textbooks.
To enroll in a Penn College NOW course, the student must pass the Penn College reading placement test which is administered at Warrior Run High School. Some courses require additional placement tests. Courses also require that students meet any pre- or co-requisites required for the individual course. Generally, 11th and 12th grade students are eligible to participate in the program. A limited number of classes are available to 10th grade students or limited to seniors only.
Penn College NOW credits and course grades will appear on a Penn College transcript and may be applied toward specific Penn College degrees or transferred to other postsecondary institutions. The extent to which the credits will transfer to another college or university is at the discretion of that college or university.
Students enrolled in a Penn College Now course will have a weighting of 1.08 applied to their course grade.
STEM MAGNET PROGRAM
The STEM Magnet Program at Bloomsburg University allows high-achieving high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get a head start on a college career in the STEM disciplines: Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The program offers a choice in two areas of focus: engineering or health sciences. It also gives students interested in math or other sciences the tools needed to be successful in college.
Students are immersed in a high-level, intensive academic program that interweaves practical applications and rigorous traditional content. During the summer and breaks, students are offered programming, listen to speakers, and visit local businesses for interactive tours as well as hands-on learning where appropriate. Students who successfully graduate from this program will be offered admission to Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania.
To be eligible for the STEM program, students must be a current sophomore and have successfully completed Algebra I, Algebra II, Geometry and two years of science by the end of their sophomore year. Students must also receive a positive recommendation from a science or math teacher as part of the application process.
Once accepted, students must make a two-year commitment to the program as well as a four-day commitment during each summer (four days are not consecutive). Students will attend classes at Warrior Run High School for only part of the day. The remainder of their school day is spent at Bloomsburg University.
