SAINT JOSEPH HIGH SCHOOL COLLEGE IN HIGH SCHOOL PROGRAM
Saint Joseph High School offers students 55 college credits from Carlow University, Duquesne University, La Roche College, Saint Vincent College, Seton Hill, and the University of Pittsburgh. SJHS students have the opportunity to earn up to 46 college credits while in high school. Some SJHS students begin college as a second semester freshman or first semester sophomore. This translates into one or two semesters of college tuition at a fraction of the cost. This program gives students greater control over their college experience. Some choose to graduate early, while others study abroad, double major, or explore academic interests outside of their major.
