Suffolk County Community College Excelsior Program Highlights
Suffolk County Community College’s Excelsior Program provides high school students the opportunity to earn college credit by means of a high quality experience in the high school comparable to that of the college classroom.

Our goal is to inspire increasing numbers of high school students to attend college, promote their self-confidence while building motivation for continued study, and provide advanced-learning opportunities for motivated students with an effective transition to post-secondary learning.  Qualified students enjoy greater flexibility in college having earned college credits prior to commencing post-secondary study.
