High school students can enroll in PVCC Early College programs to take classes and earn college credits. This saves time and money while providing specialized support services to ensure a successful college transition.  Students graduate high school while potentially earning an AGEC certificate or an associate's degree at PVCC.

We offer programs and services to assist you in your educational journey and enhance your involvement and participation in learning. PVCC extends a range of Early College scholarships to help cover the expenses of these additional courses.

You can take Concurrent Enrollment classes on the PVCC campus while you are in high school (Start Sooner program).
