The College Advantage Program at St. John’s provides qualifying high school juniors and seniors with the opportunity to enroll concurrently in high school and credit bearing St. John’s courses at a cost of $325 per course, a deep discount from regular undergraduate tuition rates.
Classes are taught at your high school by approved teachers in areas of study that include English, mathematics, language, fine arts, science, social sciences, and humanities. This program benefits high-achieving students to be further motivated and to get a "head start" on college.
College Advantage students who enroll at St. John’s University the semester after high school graduation receive a $3,000 Tuition Grant per year. Participating students who are admitted and decide to enroll at St. John’s immediately after high school graduation become eligible for the College Advantage Program Grant, applicable for up to four years of full-time, continuous undergraduate study at St. John’s University. In addition, all completed College Advantage courses, including the grades received, will be part of the student’s academic record at St. John’s University and will be reflected on the student’s transcript and factored into the student’s cumulative GPA.
Please note that the applicability of credits toward the participating student's St. John’s degree will be dependent upon the student's chosen program of study at St. John’s.
There are currently more than 100 schools who participate in the St. John's University College Advantage Program. If your school is not currently a participant in the program, contact your school's main office and have them contact [email protected].
Juniors and seniors who attend one of the participating schools noted above should contact their high school’s College Advantage liaison to learn more.
Students who attend currently non-participating schools should reach out to their guidance counselor and request that he or she contact Margarita David (information noted below) to learn more about how the high school may become a participating school.
