Collegiate Academy at Felician University:
ICHS Collegiate Academy is a co-ministry sponsored project with Felician University and a recognized program for upperclassmen with academic talents offering more than a traditional high school learning environment. Juniors and seniors with a grade point average of 3.5 or higher are invited to participate in Collegiate Academy and take college level courses while still enrolled in ICHS.
Students may take up to 30 transferable college credits at Felician University. These courses take place on Felician University’s campus with college professors and college students. Courses may be taken in the summer, after school, or students may fit courses in their daily school schedule.
While many local public and private high schools have recently begun to roll-out this type of learning program, ICHS has been an academic leader by offering this program with Felician University since 1983. Formerly known as Project Forward, ICHS is proud to have paved the way to a unique learning environment for our students. By giving academically talented students the opportunity to take university level courses, we are strengthening their educational experience and encouraging them to step out of the mold of a “traditional” high school student and expand their horizons to be a forward thinker, a confident student, and a capable adult.
The Collegiate Academy program provides our students with a much greater vision of their own potential futures and what it takes to succeed at a competitive college and beyond. ICHS graduates arrive onto college campuses with not only more confidence that they can handle college coursework, but college credits toward their degree.
