College Credit Courses

College Credit

Under a dual enrollment program, Sacred Heart Academy students may take courses through the St. John’s University Extension Program, the Long Island High School Program of Adelphi University, the High School Program at Molloy College and St. Joseph’s College. This enables the academy to offer optional college credit for an additional fee at the same time a student is earning high school credit for her SHA diploma. Transfer of the credit may be sought at other colleges according to the regulations of the admitting college/university. Courses are offered in English, French, Spanish, Biology, Mathematics, Music, Social Studies and Art.
