Fr. Fessio Leads New Online College Program for High School Students

The Angelicum Great Books Program, recommended by our Newman Guide here, partnered with Ignatius Press this year to form the Ignatius-Angelicum Liberal Studies Program.  The newly merged program is headed by Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J., founder and editor of Ignatius, as Chancellor. The program is an international college-credit program for Catholic high school students, homeschoolers, and others.  It combines distance education, online classes, and Ignatius Critical Editions Great Books and Study Guides, to provide Catholic high school students with the ability to earn college credit, while acquiring the foundations for a Catholic liberal education, the Ignatius press release related. The program boasts that enrolment rose from 48 to 96 students this year.  Also, the four-year Great Books program has 173 students total, an increase of 105 from last year. Other Newman Guide institutions have partnered with Angelicum, accepting its courses as college credit.  These include Benedictine College, Campion College, St. Bede's Hall, and Catholic Distance University.
