SCCC has a selection of post regents level courses appropriate for delivery to Suffolk County high schools through the Excelsior Program. The majority of these courses are introductory level, general education courses that support statewide higher education goals. Participating in the SCCC Excelsior Program affords a multitude of benefits to enrich the high school student’s academic experience, while providing challenging college courses that allow students to begin their college transcript and enhance their college admissions profile.
Students should contact their high school administration or guidance counselor for selection and enrollment of approved courses offered through the Excelsior Program in their respective high school. With the assistance of their counselor, students may plan their future education by creating a “pathway” of Excelsior Program courses to take in high school; allowing them to get an advanced start on a college degree.
Courses offered through the Excelsior Program to participating Suffolk County high school students may include: Art, Business, Computer Science, Culinary, Digital Filmmaking/TV, English, History, LOTE, Mathematics, Music and Science.
The Excelsior Program assures the quality of concurrent enrollment courses by requiring the use of course syllabi and college learning level academic textbooks and course materials approved by SCCC academic departments.
