Dual Enrollment

Dean's list


Students at Saint Joe’s can begin their college careers in high school through dual enrollment. In fact, students may potentially graduate with a total of 39 college credits—almost a full year at the college/university level.

Dual enrollment allows Saint Joe’s faculty members who hold a master’s or doctorate degree to teach the college courses.  The syllabi and curricula match the requirements of the college/university, and have been approved by the chairs at the respective institutions. Dual enrollment courses fulfill requirement for Saint Joe’s graduation.

Juniors and seniors may register for the course(s) and pay a minimum amount for the college credit.  The cost is approximately $50-$60 per credit as compared to $470 – $1000 or more depending on the higher level institutions. In one science course, students are expected to take a national exam that is worth 20% of the final grade.  All courses receive credit and grades based on teacher evaluations and assessments.

The following courses are offered:

Students and parents are thrilled by this unique opportunity, which offers not only college credit, but more importantly, experience with college-level course work. In addition, parents appreciate the opportunity for their students to accrue credit for minimal cost.

Transcripts are delivered to each student’s choice of college directly from the dual enrollment college/university. It is not required that students attend the college/university from which they receive credit.

At the heart of Catholic education is a commitment to each individual student’s growth and development as a whole person.

As more families choose Saint Joe’s, we rely on the generosity of donors like you who believe in our mission to form the next generation of leaders through a high-quality Catholic education.
