Pioneer Research Paper: Sustainable Urban Development

“I integrated art, STEM and environmental engineering all together into one study. Pioneer has very strict research requirements, and they make the experience even more rewarding.”

College Credit

Pioneer has a rigorous academic system and strict ethical codes which ensure high level and authentic accomplishment. This is why Pioneer is qualified to grant college credit and why Pioneer experience is well respected.

College credit

The Pioneer Research Program is the only online U.S.- college credit-bearing research program for high school students that offers STEM, social sciences, and humanities disciplines with 28 research areas to choose from.

Students selected into Pioneer will receive two college credits if they pass the program. The ground breaking collaboration between Pioneer Academics and Oberlin College ensures that the quality of the research mentorship is held to the highest standards in order to qualify for college credit.

Pioneer’s credibility allows Pioneer scholars to demonstrate their genuine passion and true academic ability through Pioneer’s rigorous system.

Completion of the Pioneer Research Program is listed in college applications as a college course, not an activity or camp, because of the rigorous requirements of its academic system. Pioneer Scholars need to contact their counselors or Pioneer’s team to learn more if necessary.

Pioneer’s college credits granted by Oberlin College are readily transferable to other colleges. Pioneer alumni need to ask Oberlin College to send the Pioneer transcript to the destination institution. The registrar’s office of the receiving institution will decide if the credits will be accepted.

Because of its unique academic system, exemplary standards, and proven integrity, Pioneer’s credibility is respected by selective universities and colleges.
