Steelton-Highspire School District has partnered with
Harrisburg Area Community College (HACC) to offer our seventh grade students to
be part of the Harrisburg Promise program.This program targets seventh grade students and provides supports for
them to maintain their academics and prepare for post-secondary education.Current seventh grade students were selected
for the Harrisburg Promise program based on them attaining a Grade Point
Average (GPA) of at least a 2.5.These
students will spend the next five years of their high school career attending
monthly meetings at HACC to provide supplemental support to prepare our students
to be college and career ready.Students
completing the program maintaining their GPA, staying free of drugs and
alcohol, and attending the monthly meetings will receive two years of free
tuition at any of the HACC campuses.This is an amazing opportunity for our students!
