Pierson students can earrn cheap college credits


Students at Pierson High School in Sag Harbor will be able to earn as much as two semesters worth of college credits while taking high school Advanced Placement, or AP, courses next year, at a fraction of the cost a college would charge.

Superintendent Dr. John Gratto said Monday that students in Pierson’s AP classes will be able to earn between two and four college credits if they pass the AP course exam at the end of the year. The credits would be awarded to them by Suffolk County Community College for $50 per credit.

With 14 AP courses offered by the school, Dr. Gratto said that some students could earn between 30 and 45 credits toward college while at Pierson.
