Starting College, Early That Is!

Sacred Hearts Academy Early College Program
Chaminade University, Fall 2018
Sacred Hearts Academy is again offering a program that allows students to get a “jump start” on the next phase of their studies by starting college early! This fall, Chaminade University (CU) joins Leeward Community College (LCC) in the school’s “Early College Program” (ECP) efforts. 

Under the program, qualifying High School students enroll in select collegiate courses while completing their regular curriculum studies. This process earns a “dual credit” that applies to their High School graduation requirements while receiving college credits in the process. 

Eight Academy students are currently enrolled in one of the many ECP courses, such as World Civilization, World Religions and Introduction to Expository Writing, which meets weekly on the campus of Chaminade University. In these courses, taught by CU faculty, the Academy participants are integrated with their collegiate students. 

This semester, the Academy has 17 students enrolled in LCC’s ECP offering, Psychology, held on the Academy’s campus. During the spring semester, Academy students entered in the program will enroll in ICS101: Digital Tools for the Info World

Only Academy students in grades 10 to 12 are eligible to take ECP courses, and College Counselor Randy Fong coordinates the Academy’s efforts in this area. In addition to earning dual credits, ECP has many additional benefits, including: 

  • Advanced classes not offered on campus, such as Chinese, can be taken.  
  • Early college courses strengthen transcripts and help applications stand out.
  • These classes help prepare students for the rigors of collegiate-level coursework.
