HACC, in partnership with local high schools and fire departments, has been providing entry-level fire training and Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) certification training.  This program provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to become active in his or her local volunteer fire department or Emergency Medical Services (EMS) agency.  Successful graduates obtain multiple certifications in fire training as well as state and national certification as an EMR.  These certificates not only provide the student with tangible credentials, they also provide the students with a stepping stone to a career in public safety or healthcare.  Several high schools have voiced serious interest in this award and Cumberland Valley High School has signed up to offer the Academy to their students.  For questions, please contact Bob Stakem, director of HACC’s Public Safety Center, at rpstakem@hacc.edu.

Are you applying to college?  STHS has teamed with Parchment to make the TRANSCRIPT REQUEST PROCESS easier for you.

One of the required documents you will need when applying to college is an official high school transcript; which is a document that reflects a student’s academic record.  STHS has an online service where you can request an official high school transcript and send it to the college of your choice with just a few clicks.

Parchment sends your transcript securely, accurately and confidentially to any college or university.  The best part is you can request your transcript anytime from anywhere.  All you need is an internet connection and to visit Parchment.com.
