College Credit Opportunities

St. John's University College Advantage Program

St. John’s University’s commitment to academic excellence is manifested through the College Advantage Program which provides qualified students a concurrent enrollment in their high school and college credit-bearing courses for the University. This program is offered to qualified juniors and seniors during the academic year.  Specific courses are offered in the areas of English, mathematics, social studies, religion, and science.
  • The program provides students with an opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. This benefits high-achieving students to be further motivated and to get a “headstart” on college.
  • Students successfully passing these courses will be eligible to receive 3 college credits per course through St. John’s University.
  • Students may enroll in up to 3 courses (9 credits) per academic year.
  • Students will be responsible for all additional fees charged by St. John’s as well as completing any required applications for acceptance to the College Advantage Program.
  • It also provides reduced tuition costs to students and parents, and serves as an assessment of a student’s ability to do college level work.
  • Eligibility: Minimum 80% average (seniors) or an 85% average (juniors) in all academic subjects and a combined Math and Critical Reading SAT score of 1000 (or 100 on the PSAT, or an ACT score of 21).

Advanced Placement Program Courses

Students see the benefits of taking an AP class right away. In AP classes, just like in college, students will face new challenges and learn new skills in the subjects they care about. All with the support of their classmates and teachers. 
AP Classes allow a student to:
  • Learn how things really work. Tackle concepts that will stick with a student long after the class is through.
  • Share one's ideas and perspectives. A student's dialog and debate contributes to the knowledge that everyone shares.
  • Explore new ideas with classmates and AP teachers. See and feel what college work is actually like, while receiving the support to help a student get there.
