St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School has expanded its dual enrollment program, allowing more of its students to earn more than half of their freshman year college credits for free while still in high school.
As part of the state’s Move On When Ready program, which pays for as many as 15 credit hours and the required textbooks per semester, Pacelli students may take Columbus State University social studies courses and Georgia Military College math courses for the first time this year. Pacelli students will continue to be able to take GMC English courses.
“Expanding St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School’s dual enrollment program gives our students a head start on the future,” said Ronie Collins, St. Anne-Pacelli’s president and high school principal, in a news release. “We are thrilled to welcome CSU as a partner in education while maintaining our fantastic relationship with GMC.”
“Columbus State University is delighted to join in partnership with St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School in the Move On When Ready program, where high school students take college-level programs with Columbus State University professors,” said Tom Hackett, CSU’s executive director of K-12/university partnerships, in the release. “We are really looking forward to teaching CSU courses on the St. Anne-Pacelli Catholic School campus and to this great partnership.”
