College credit programs offered at St. Pius X are sponsored by Saint Louis University (SLU-ACC) and the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL-ACP). In this program, juniors or seniors maintaining a 3.0 cumulative grade point average on a 4.0 scale, having a teacher recommendation and having taken the prerequisite* courses are eligible. If the students meet these requirements, they can take the college credit course. The student may enroll in these college-level courses and simultaneously register at SLU and/or UMSL during the registration period.
The student receives a report card from SLU or UMSL upon the successful completion of the courses. After high school graduation, an official transcript from SLU and/or UMSL is sent to the college or university the student plans to attend.
The classes are taught by our faculty members who have been approved as adjunct professors of the universities. The syllabi and grading practices must meet university standards. A separate fee must be paid to the universities to get the college credit.
