Manor College will offer two certificate programs to students at Saint Hubert Catholic High School for Girls in Philadelphia in Entrepreneurship and Allied Health.
Manor College in Jenkintown is proud to announce a new partnership with Saint Hubert Catholic High School for Girls that provides young students the opportunity to receive college credits.
Two certificate programs will be offered in Entrepreneurship and Allied Health Pre-Professional, setting students up for future success in those fields.
“These classes give students a chance to take up to a semester of college while they’re in high school,” JP Lutz, Dual Enrollment Coordinator at Manor College, said. “It has an impact because it is an affordable way for a student to obtain college credits.”
The partnership between the two institutions is a perfect fit. Of all Saint Hubert’s alumnae, 40 percent are in the healthcare field and 23 percent are in business.
“We believe this is the education model of the future,” Pamela Vasserman, Director of Institutional Advancement at Saint Hubert. “We believe this is the education model of the future. With this new programming, we are positioning our students for future success by giving them advancement opportunities while they’re still in high school.”
The benefits for students in the dual enrollment program go beyond the classroom.
“It’s eye opening for a student who never thought about going to college who now gets an opportunity to experience something outside of what they’re used to,” Lutz said. “For an entrepreneurship student, it could be the basis for them starting their own business. It’s a chance to jump start their career.”
Manor College was started in 1947 by the Sisters of Saint Basil the Great, a Ukrainian religious order. The institution began offering Bachelor degree programs in 2017.
