Partnership allows high school students access to college-level courses

Regis College and Saint Joseph Preparatory High School are pleased to announce an agreement to increase accessibility to college-level courses for high school students. Through the partnership, qualified Saint Joseph Prep juniors and seniors can enroll in select courses offered by Regis for academic credit at both institutions.

“This partnership allows motivated high school students to earn college credits early and get a head start on their bachelor’s degree,” said Regis College President Antoinette Hays, PhD, RN. “Saint Joseph Prep is similar to Regis in that we both have a commitment to academic excellence, access, and opportunities for our students, which makes for a wonderful partner.”

“We are thrilled to be able to partner with Regis and offer our students enhanced opportunities to further their learning,” said SJP Co-Head of School Eugene Ward. “Most opportunities to earn college credit during high school require online learning; under this program, our students will have all the advantages of a classroom setting.”

Courses offered through the dual enrollment partnership are taught at the high school with oversight by the university. Interested students may apply for admission to a Regis College course through Saint Joseph Prep’s Office of Extended Learning.
