• Taking College Classes at Roosevelt

  • Roosevelt High School – Early College Studies (RHS-ECS) was established as a Smart Scholars Early College High School in 2010.


    What is a Smart Scholars Early College High School?

    Through the Smart Scholars Early College High School Program, institutions of higher education (IHEs - consisting of colleges and universities) partner with public school districts to create early college high schools that provide students with the opportunity and preparation to accelerate the completion of their high school studies while earning a minimum of twenty-four but up to sixty transferable college credits at the same time. This program targets students who are traditionally underrepresented in postsecondary education.

    Students receive additional academic support from the school/college partnerships to ensure they are at grade level and ready to participate in rigorous high school and collegiate courses.  This “dual or concurrent enrollment” program serves to increase high school graduation and college completion rates, while reducing student tuition costs as a result of the compressed time required to earn a college degree.

    At RHS-ECS, 22 college courses are available taught by vetted RHS-ECS staff on campus as dual credit/concurrent enrollment courses.  One college course is offered on The College of Westchester campus for college credit only.  Please refer to the course catalog for a complete course listing and prerequisites.

    During the 2017 – 2018 academic year. 248 students were enrolled in College Link courses earning a total of 1,759 credits.
