Pathway To College

Pathway to College

In accordance with Bishop Sullivan’s vision for nurturing long-term Catholic education for our students, St. Joseph High School has developed — and continues to develop — partnerships with colleges and universities in order to offer both “guaranteed admission” and college credits for the students of the high school.  These options can be pursued, by interested parents and students, through the guidance office.  These agreements are the basis of a process designed to assist students of St. Joseph in their transition into college. The “Pathway to College” initiative gives students a clear route to college education and offers them the opportunity for a “head-start “on actual college credit work. 

At present, St. Joseph is offering dual credit courses with The College of St. Elizabeth in both English and mathematics. Beginning in 2016-2017, students have the opportunity to earn credits in both the College Writing and Finite Math courses offered by St. Joe’s. Students applying for dual credit through The College of St. Elizabeth’s “College Now” program, who meet the minimum requirements, will also be granted guaranteed admission to The College of St. Elizabeth. In any case, the credits they earn may be transferrable to the school of their choice in the future.

In addition, St. Joseph also has guaranteed admission agreements in place with Georgian Court University, Delaware Valley College and Holy Family University for students who meet the minimum requirements.

According to our agreements, these schools will waive application fees; provide on-site advisement for prospective students and parents; provide on-site college search and financial aid workshops and presentations and award competitive academic and partnership scholarships to qualified students. Holy Family University will also provide priority campus housing selection for prospective resident students.

Students will also be offered “instant decision” days from a selection of these colleges and universities during college visitations.

Moving forward, the guidance and academics departments will continue to seek out partnerships with colleges and universities – especially with Catholic schools – in order to foster a lifelong commitment to education, in general, but to Catholic education, in particular.
