Harry S. Truman High School is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a $75,000 grant to expand its dual enrollment offerings. The competitive grant, which was awarded by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, will help Truman High School provide more opportunities for students to earn college credits while still in high school.

Dual enrollment programs allow high school students to take college-level courses through the school district and earn credits that can be applied to their college degree. This not only helps students save money on college tuition, but also gives them a head start on their college education.  Truman currently has a dual-enrollment agreement with Bucks County Community College with students having the opportunity to take college courses such as criminology, psychology and macroeconomics. 

With the grant funding, Truman High School will be able to expand its dual enrollment offerings and provide more courses in a variety of subjects, starting with the 2023-2024 school year. This will enable students to explore different academic areas and find their passions before they even graduate from high school.

"We are thrilled to have received this grant and to be able to expand our dual enrollment offerings," Amy Coleman, District Director of Curriculum and Instruction stated. "This will give our students even more opportunities to excel academically and to prepare for their future."

Truman High School has a strong track record of success in dual enrollment programs, with many students already earning college credits through a partnership with higher education. The grant will enable Truman High School to build on this success and provide even more opportunities for students to achieve their academic goals.

“We are continually looking for ways to embrace and implement progressive approaches to teaching and learning at Truman,” Secondary Supervisor Rob Findlay shared. “Expanding dual enrollment opportunities through this grant will allow us to provide students a pathway to exciting coursework and a way to go to college already having earned credits, which helps save families money.”

“I want to thank Mrs. Coleman and Mr. Findlay for their work on this grant,” Superintendent Michael Nitti stated. “We are excited to see the grant-supported higher educational experiences that will benefit Truman High School students.”
