Faculty Connections

High School Faculty

High school faculty who teach courses offered through the Excelsior Program are selected and certified by both their high school principal and Suffolk County Community College. To be certified to teach courses offered through the Excelsior Program, high school faculty should hold credentials equivalent to Suffolk's faculty teaching a comparable on-campus course.

There is collaboration between the high school faculty and Suffolk's faculty in each academic department.

High School Faculty Benefits:

  • Tours of the college are hosted for Excelsior Program high school faculty and their students upon request through Excelsior Program Administration.
  • Excelsior Program guidelines for participating high school faculty are available upon request by contacting Excelsior Program Administration.
