Phoenixville high schoolers can take classes at Immaculata

    Eligible students in the Phoenixville School District now have the opportunity to take college-level classes at nearby Immaculata University. The district and university have announced a partnership that begins this spring semester.

    Juniors and seniors with a B average and a couple honors or Advanced Placement classes under their belts can enroll in college classes at Immaculata where they can earn credits that will transfer to other colleges come high school graduation.

    The Phoenix reports the high school students can enroll at a 55 percent tuition rate reduction — about $600 per three-credit course — and won’t have to pay enrollment fees.

    Students will take the classes with other high school and college students and get a feel for life on a college campus.
