Parkway C.C. gives students chance to earn associate degrees, certificates upon graduation

Parkway Center City High School will soon take on a new name in the fall — Parkway Center City Middle College High School. Starting in the 2017-18 school year, the special admission school will offer incoming ninth-graders the opportunity to graduate with high school diplomas, associate degrees and up to two professional certifications each.

Parkway Center City Middle College is designed to prepare all students for college, careers and participation in the knowledge-based global economy. It is a collaboration between the District and the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) to provide students in Philadelphia a rigorous high school education with the added value of a college degree.
