Project Advance is a partnership linking Syracuse University with secondary schools.
Through this partnership, high schools can offer qualified seniors the opportunity to concurrently enroll in Syracuse University courses for credit.
Partnering with SU also provides other important services for participating high schools: in-service training and professional development for high school instructors; a continuing forum for communication between educators in high school and university settings; and extensive ongoing research and evaluation for systemic improvement of concurrent enrollment instruction.
Syracuse University Project Advance pledges the following:
- To offer innovative and challenging SU courses to qualified high school students at their local high schools, during their regularly scheduled high school day;
- To increase students’ college readiness by providing college readiness tools, programs, and services;
- To provide continuous professional development for teachers and ongoing dialogue between Syracuse University faculty and the high school teachers;
- To conduct extensive ongoing research and evaluation in support of systemically improving instruction and smoothing the transition from high school to post-secondary education.
