Holy Cross High School is pleased to announce its continuation of our partnership with Lackawanna College in the form of a Dual Enrollment Program for juniors and seniors. This program will allow students to earn college credits at a reduced rate while still completing high school requirements. The discounted tuition rate is $100/credit (i.e. a standard 3 credit course would cost $300).
The college credits earned in this program will be transferable to the college or university of your choice upon graduation. To help ensure transferability, Lackawanna College participates in several articulation agreements including the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education’s Academic Passport program, as well as direct transfer agreements with many of the local and regional public/private schools.
Juniors and seniors may sign up for Dual Enrollment each February in guidance. They do not leave the Holy Cross campus while participating in this program.
The Diocesan College Scholarship Program is designed for exceptional students enrolled in the Diocesan Catholic school system who are in search of a challenging extension from their high school environment. The goal of the Diocesan College Scholarship Program is to provide Catholic high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to participate in classes held at a local Catholic college/university while simultaneously matriculating at the high school level. This provides an opportunity for the high school student to experience college, for the high school to expand its learning environment and for the Catholic colleges and universities to strengthen their relationship with the Diocese while increasing local student enrollment.
