Philadelphia University and High School Announce Dual-Credit Partnership

Holy Family University announced today a partnership with Archbishop Ryan High School that includes a dual-credit program.

Archbishop Ryan students who complete Holy Family courses offered on Ryan's campus will receive both high school and college credits for their work.

"Today marks an historic moment in our school's 47-year history," Ryan's President Michael McCardle said at a signing ceremony carried live on the websites of both Ryan and Holy Family University.

The dual-credit program will begin in the fall with courses including: introduction to criminal justice, introduction to philosophy and American popular culture.

Each semester-long course offers three college credits.

As a result of the agreement, Ryan students will be charged a reduced rate of $200 per course and will be responsible for paying for books.

The agreement signed Tuesday by officials from Holy Family, Archbishop Ryan and the archdiocese also waives application fees to Holy Family for Ryan students who graduate with at least a 2.5 grade point average.
