    ** Seton Hall University will only permit students to earn a maximum of 21 college credits through the Project Acceleration program.

    In addition to the courses listed above students who complete AP Calculus 2 by the first semester of their senior year also have the option of enrolling in an online Calculus 3 (4 credits) course. The students at Holy Cross Academy who have taken advantage of this option have chosen the program at the University of North Dakota.

     

    In summary, if students take advantage of all the aforementioned opportunities they can earn up to 46 college credits prior to graduation.

     

    The process for enrolling in the aforementioned courses will be explained to the students by the teachers of those courses during the first week of each semester and to the parents at Back to School Night.
