Who We Are
The College in High School Alliance (CHSA) is a coalition of national and state organizations collaborating to positively impact policies and build broad support for programs that enable high school students to enroll in authentic, affordable college pathways toward postsecondary degrees and credentials offered with appropriate support. CHSA’s core belief, backed by numerous studies that demonstrate the significant benefits to students, is that strengthening and expanding college in high school programs will improve secondary education and significantly increase college access, affordability, and completion for all students, particularly those who are low-income, underrepresented in higher education or at risk of not completing postsecondary education.
Members of the College in High School Alliance adhere to the following principles:
EQUITY - Access to college in high school programs should be available to students regardless of their race, family income status, or their geography.
QUALITY - College in high school programs should be high quality, providing authentic and intentionally designed college course experiences to students facilitated by a core partnership between K12 and institutions of higher education.
STUDENT SUCCESS - Programs should be designed with student achievement for all at their core, including providing the support services necessary to encourage success in college and career for students at-risk of not completing postsecondary education.
