The Support-A-Scholar program began during the 2019-2020 school year when the school district created partnerships with Kutztown University and Reading Area Community College. Students taking dual enrollment courses receive discounted tuition and are able to focus on college-level material from KU and RACC. These credits are able to be transferred to many universities including Penn State, Temple, Bucknell, Millersville, to name a few.
The Education Foundation subsidizes a portion of the dual enrollment course tuition at
the time of successful course completion. In 2021, year to date, over $3,000 has been reimbursed to students and their families. A student enrolled in and completing dual enrollment courses has the potential to save as much as $7,300 in tuition. By noting “Support-A-Scholar” in the memo line of a future donation, you may help to support this specific, important endeavor.
