The College Planning Manager/School Counselor will work with each postgraduate (PG) student to select courses that will fit their interests and ensure they are well prepared for the academic rigors of college. We offer challenging courses in small, supportive classes to ensure success.
Students can earn college credit through our UConn Early College Experience courses, which include:
Introduction to Academic Writing (ENGL1004)
Seminar in Academic Writing (ENGL1010)
Drawing I (ART1030)
ECE courses are taught by our own faculty, who have been vetted through a rigorous application process by UConn, and are now considered fully certified University of Connecticut adjunct faculty members. ECE courses will be blended into our daily curriculum, and students will experience the rigor of a college course while earning college credit. In order to earn credit, students must earn a final grade of a C or higher. Any college or university that accepts UConn credit will accept ECE credit earned in high school. The UConn ECE program boasts an 87% credit transfer rate.
PG students can also enroll in AP and other upper level courses as well as a wide variety of elective classes. Students can also apply for college-level courses at the University of Saint Joseph, for which both TMS and college credit will be earned. Internship experiences are another opportunity to earn TMS credit.
PG students are required to take 6.0 credits over the course of the school year, with at least 4 classes per trimester. Three of these credits must be allocated for English (1.0 credit), Math (1.0 credit), and Bible (1.0 credit). Beyond these required courses, students are able to pursue art, science, social studies and other offered electives.
