It is with great excitement that we announce that Berlin High School is one of the Top 10 high schools in Connecticut in terms of both the total number of students enrolled and the most credit hours taken in the UConn Early College Experience program for the 2020-2021 academic year. This year, Berlin High School is ranked No. 4 in the state, with 215 students enrolled and 1,792 UConn credit hours taken through ECE. 

The University of Connecticut ECE program enables students to concurrently earn high school and college-level credits.

BHS teachers serve as adjunct professors to teach coursework that meets the same intensity and integrity as those on the college campus. Earning UConn college credits affords Berlin High School students opportunities to experience a “college like” academic experience and potentially graduate college early, allowing for a significant cost savings

In addition, successful completion allows students to be more competitive in the college application process.

From 2010 to 2021, Berlin High School has increased its UConn ECE enrollment from 135 to 215 students and course offerings have grown from 10 to 17. We are proud to partner with UConn in order to provide this high level opportunity for our students. This commendation is a reflection of the purpose, passion and pride of the Berlin High School students as they continually avail themselves of challenging coursework.
