PILLAR COLLEGE  INTERNATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL DEED PROGRAM

双学分教育课程(DEED)——高中文凭课程是栋梁(Pillar)学院最令人兴奋的课程之一。已经在中国读完11年级(而非高中)的中国学生,可以进入栋梁学院参加该课程,只要获得30个特定的大学学分,成绩在C或以上,即可获得免修高中文凭。由于文凭基于大学学分,该文凭甚至比最具声誉的高中文凭更有含金量。

美国大多数高中允许中国学生从二年级重新开始,但在三年级结束前,他们可能已经学完了所有必须的高中课程的同等课程。这样做是因为他们的英语语言技能较差。这一政策导致学生要浪费三年的学习。与此同时,他们也不得不学习强制性的英语、历史、健康和宗教课程,这些课程对于美语母语人士和英语非母语的学生来说同样困难。数学、体育和理科课程对于国外学生则没有那么困难。

One of the most exciting programs at Pillar is the Dual Enrollment Education Program (DEED) – our high school diploma initiative. This is a program where Chinese students, for example, who have completed the 11th grade in China, can come to Pillar, rather than a high school, and earn an advanced standing high school diploma once they have completed 30 specific college credits with a C or better. Since the diploma is based on college credits, it is more valuable than a diploma from even the most prestigious high school.

Most high schools in the United States allow Chinese students to start over as sophomores, although they may have completed the equivalent of all required high school course by the end of their junior year. This is done because of their lower English language skills. This policy causes students to lose three years of education. At the same time, they are also forced to take the same mandated English, history, health, and religion classes which are as difficult for American English speakers as they are for non-native English speaking students. Math, physical education and Science courses are not as difficult for foreign students.

在栋梁学院,我们实行一套独有的教学法。我们会测试学生的英语语言能力,并根据他们的需求制定非母语英语课程计划。我们不会让他们浪费时间和学分,而是让他们在第一学期学习数学、理科和计算机扫盲素养课程。如果有需要,我们会提供辅导。我们还提供各种非母语英语课程,以便他们更加快速和高效地学习英语。

At Pillar, we take a uniquely different approach. We test students to see where they stand with their English language proficiency and develop an ESL plan just for their needs. Rather than waste time and credits, we enroll them in math, science and computer literacy classes during their first semester. If they need tutoring, we provide it. We also offer extensive English as a Second Language (ESL) program, so that they can learn English faster and more effectively. During their second semester, they will take a more advanced math class such as pre-calculus, a technology class, a psychology class, and if ready, English Composition 1. The next two semesters they will take other General Education classes, English Composition 2, and courses for their future major. If students remain at Pillar for two years, they will generally earn 60 credits that can be transferred to any college or university that accepts transfer credits.

在第二学期,学生将学习高等数学课程,比如微积分、技术课程、心理学课程,如果准备好了的话,还将学习英语写作1课程。在接下来的两个学期内,他们讲学习其他通识教育课程、英语写作2和未来的专业课程。如果学生在栋梁学院读满两年,一般会获得60个学分,则可转换成任何接受学分转换的大学学分。

栋梁学院和罗格斯大学、普林斯顿大学、纽约大学和宾夕法尼亚州立大学等所有主要专业领域的院校拥有同样的顶级区域认证。在栋梁学院获得的大学学分也可以转换成美国其他地方的认证机构的学分,比如斯坦福大学、哈佛大学和麻省理工大学。我们的班级大小通常不超过25个学生,教授也拥有高级学位并在各自的领域高度专业,因而我们的留学生成功率很高。

Pillar College has the same top-level regional accreditation as all major area institutions such as Rutgers, Princeton, New York University and Penn State. College credits earned at Pillar can also be transferred to accredited institutions in other parts of the country such as Stanford, Harvard and MIT. Since our class sizes are generally less than 25 students and our professors have advanced degrees and are highly-specialized in their subject area, our foreign students have a high success rate.

我们的班级大小通常不超过25个学生,教授也经过严格培训,大部分拥有博士学位并在各自的领域高度专业,因而我们的留学生成功率更高。

Since class sizes are generally less than 25 students, and our professors are trained teachers, most of which have their doctorate degrees, foreign students have a higher success rate.

师生比例很高,因而教师的关注度更高,个人时间也更充裕。

DEED每年为学生的学业节省10万美元的费用。而中等私立学校平均每年的学费为45000美元,所以每年就省下了55000美元的费用。然而,如果学生参加工作,而不是在学校支付学费的话,节省的费用就远不止这么多了。如果工资每年只按照55000美元来计算的话,总节省费用则为10万美元。

一般中文国际高中学生的平均学习时间比正常拿到学士学位的时间要长三年。这相当于额外损失了30万美元的费用。不仅如此,学生参加工作的时间也晚了三年。

Every year that DEED saves a student in his or her education journey equates to a $100,000 per year saving. With mid-level private schools averaging $45,000 per year in tuition costs, the result is a $55,000 savings per year. However, that savings needs to be added to any job earnings that the student would earn rather than having to attend school and pay tuition. If that job pays only $55,000 per year, the combined savings is $100,000.

The typical Chinese international high school student is averaging three years more than normal to finish his or her bachelor’s degree. That is a $300,000-plus loss. Additionally, it will take those students three years longer to get into their profession.

栋梁学院课程的优势还在于:

• 成功获得30个大学学分后,学生将被视为“转换生”,无需通过SAT或ACT考试来转 入其他学校。

• 如果学生在英语写作1和2课程中获得较高的分数,那么大多数大学将豁免任何托福 考试要求。

•  转换生还有更多的机会进入自己选择的大学。大学里由于退学而出现的学生空缺会 面向转换生,因此转换生申请大学的成功比例会远远高于新生申请人。

• 同时,转换生的平均成绩(GPA)不需要和新生申请人的一样高。

• 为了获得更高的平均成绩,栋梁学院还允许学生重修课程。

Another advantage of the Pillar program is that upon successful completion of their 30 college credits, students are considered “transfer students” and do not need SAT or ACT test scores to transfer to another institution. If they get good grades in their English Composition 1 & 2 classes, most universities wave any TOEFL score requirements. Transfer students also have a greater chance of getting into the school of their choice since the ratio of transfer applicants to available openings, due to drop outs, is far lower than those who apply as freshman. Also, college GPA does not have to be as high as high school GPA. Pillar also allows students to retake classes in order to get a higher GPA.
