Manor College has recently been welcomed into the United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA), a national organization for the intercollegiate athletic programs of community, junior, and small colleges across the United States. Manor has previously been a member of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and will remain in that association for men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track and field. Manor’s acceptance into the USCAA will allow junior and senior students to play on the College’s athletic teams. In the past, athletes had to transfer to another school to continue playing their sport of choice. Eight sports will compete in the USCAA: baseball, men and women’s basketball, men and women’s cross country, men and women’s soccer, and women’s volleyball. John Dempster, Manor College’s Athletic Director stated, “I am absolutely thrilled to continue our athletic journey with the USCAA. Being in his conference gives our athletes the opportunity to stay right where they want to be and that is here at Manor College. This move is historical for the college as our upperclassmen can now compete athletically while working toward their bachelor’s degree which is our ultimate goal.” Shawn Wood, a current student stated, “I’m really looking forward to my second year playing soccer here at Manor and having such an amazing coach and Athletic Director like John Dempster who gives a fair chance to every player here. I’m looking forward to being able to mentor incoming students in the future.” The Athletic Department and the entire Manor College Community is thrilled about this exciting news!

Manor College has recently signed a Dual Enrollment Agreement with Archbishop Wood High School. Through this partnership, senior students enrolled at Archbishop Wood can earn college credits while still in high school. Earning college credits while in high school allows students to get ahead while also saving money—setting them up to graduate with less debt. Gary V. Zimmaro Sr, President of Archbishop Wood High School, stated, “Archbishop Wood is looking forward to a long partnership with Manor College. We believe that the partnership will enhance the academic program at Archbishop Wood and open many new doors for our students. Many new ideas will be shared as our relationship evolves.” “Manor College is excited to expand our High School Dual Enrollment Program with Archbishop Wood. The program has been a great opportunity for High School students to start their pathways into college degrees in Business, Criminal Justice, and Computer Science. The partnership with Wood is our first High School Partnership with our Engineering Program, and we can’t wait to get started in the Fall!”, said Marc Minnick, Provost & Vice President of Academic Affairs.
