Dual Enrollment Credits at BC

Imagine saving thousands of dollars and countless hours on college while still attending high school.  That is the reality at Bishop Carroll Catholic High School!  Through various partnerships with local colleges and universities, BCCHS students are able to take classes in their regular schedule, taught by our qualified faculty, while at the same time earning credits.
 
Each fall, students sign up for the classes through the various colleges.  Our teachers then teach the course and then report the grades to the schools.  Students are then able to transfer those credits to the colleges that they desire upon graduation from BCCHS.  The cost per credit ranges from $55 to $65, which is on average, 90% less than what they will pay at those schools!  In recent years, some students have graduated with 24, 27, 31, and 36 credits.  Not only does that save money, but these credits also save students time in college, allowing them to graduate early or obtain a minor, a dual major, or even another degree in the same four-year time period.  2021 graduate Ellie Long attends West Chester University outside of Philadelphia.  She earned over 30 credits while attending Bishop Carroll, as well as being able to opt out of several classes at West Chester because of her education on Husky Hill.  She said, “This program should be something that every student signs up for at BC.  It will save countless hours and thousands of dollars.  The teachers are excellent, and Bishop Carroll is respected among colleges.”
 
Adison Divido, 2018 BCCHS alum, was able to graduate from UPJ in three years because of the Dual Enrollment classes she took here.  She spoke highly of the program, saying, “There are many things that if I could, I would go back in time and tell my teenage self to change or do differently.  However, taking dual enrollment at Bishop Carroll is not one of those things!  The program is a fantastic opportunity that as a high school student, you do not want to miss!  Dual Enrollment allowed me to graduate high school with 21 college credits, which is more than an entire college semester.  I have now graduated from college in three years and am able to take a year off before graduate school.  Along with this, I was able to experience a trip to France with dual enrollment through Saint Francis.  The payoff for the courses is worth it!  I can’t say enough about the program and encourage everyone to take advantage!”
