Students at the Academy may earn college credit in one of two ways, both of which enable them to enter college with advanced standing. In doing so, many Mary Help graduates have realized countless dollars saved on college tuition over the years! The requirements for enrollment in AP and dual enrollment vary by course, as do the transferability requirements of colleges and universities in which students will ultimately enroll. However, the benefits of these courses are clear:
- Earning multiple credits at a reduced cost;
- Saving money on future tuition, thereby reducing student debt for college graduates;
- Allowing economically disadvantaged students the opportunity to take college level courses;
- Graduating early from college.
The Academy currently partners with Rutgers and Fairleigh Dickinson University for its dual enrollment courses, all of which are offered on our very own campus. Advanced Placement courses culminate with the annual AP exam offered by The College Board. To see a list of our offerings, please reference the table below.
