Huntingdon Center To Relocate Through CollaborationPosted May 16, 2022 at 9:40 am
Pennsylvania Highlands Community College is proud of its rich history in Huntingdon, dating back to the first set of classes being held in the county in August 2009. Our impact within the Huntingdon community has only grown since then, with more than 900 students being served in the county over the past 10 years.
In addition to providing accessible and affordable academic options in the form of degrees, certificates, and diplomas, Penn Highlands provides high school students in both the Mount Union and Southern Huntingdon County school districts with dual enrollment and associate degree in high school options through the College’s robust dual enrollment program.
This July, our connection with Huntingdon County will continue to strengthen as Penn Highlands Community College will partner with Juniata College on a new venture. The two institutions have already been working together for years to ensure that post-secondary educational opportunities are available to Huntingdon County residents. Now, their commitment to student and regional success connects even more as Penn Highlands Community College relocates its Huntingdon Center to the Sill Business Incubator at Juniata College.
“We are looking forward to this collaboration with Juniata College,” stated Dr. Steve Nunez, President of Penn Highlands Community College. “This partnership allows Penn Highlands to continue providing accessible and affordable quality education and service to residents of Huntingdon County.”
The Penn Highlands Huntingdon Center will begin operating in the Sill Business Incubator (419 14th Street, Huntingdon, PA 16652) in July 2022. In this new location, Penn Highlands will guide students to academic success through its robust online program offerings.
“We are excited to welcome Penn Highlands Community College Huntingdon to the Sill Business Incubator here at Juniata College,” stated Dr. Jason Moran, Vice President of Enrollment at Juniata College. “This move builds on an established partnership of collaboratively building curricular pathways and transfer options to better serve college students throughout our region who are in pursuit of a post-secondary education.”
Penn Highlands Community College has been serving the region since 1994 and is looking forward to serving the residents of Huntingdon County for many years to come. Fall classes begin this August.
