Senior High Segway Program

Segway

 (def: the act of changing smoothly from one setting to another.  A smooth transition.  In this case, moving from high school to post-high school plans for career, college or the military as successfully as possible.)

Dual enrollment for high school students in college courses has gained acceptance and popularity and continues to expand. This program provides exposure to college work while in a high school setting.

Summit Christian Academy’s Senior High Segway Program is unique and flexible, offering students the opportunity to take traditional content courses in the classroom as well as college-level courses at Clarks Summit University. The program is designed for 11th and 12th grade students to earn their SCA high school diploma while also earning college credit. Each Segway course earns a student one high school credit and three college credits. Students may use credits toward careers, college, the military, or technical and trade schools.

Why Segway?
  • Traditional courses are completed in a classroom setting with other high school students.
  • Segway courses are completed on Clarks Summit University’s campus, allowing students the ability to take advantage of course offerings in classrooms at CSU.
  • The Segway Program offers financial incentives for saving money on college tuition.  College credits earned in high school provide students and families an average savings of $1,600 per three credit course.
  • The Segway Program maintains a sense of community through high school graduation, and provides additional opportunities for extra-curriculars and camaraderie among peers.
  • Students benefit as they may use credits toward college, the military, or technical and trade schools.
  • College credits earned while at SCA may transfer to a college of the student’s choice.
  • Alternatives during online summer sessions, as well as options at other post-secondary schools, offer opportunities for additional enrichment in higher level math courses, science courses, and foreign language courses.
  • Junior and senior class missions ministry trips for fun, ministry, and learning, as well as high school credit toward graduation.
  • Because of a more flexible schedule for students in the program, special opportunities for independent study may be possible.
