High School Dual Enrollment

Roberts Wesleyan College is excited to partner with high schools for our dual-enrollment program. This offers partnering schools the opportunity to have their qualified faculty teach one or more of our established college courses to high school juniors and seniors who earn Roberts Wesleyan College credits at significantly reduced tuition rates. We are currently expanding this program to a select number of private schools in upstate New York that are open to offering their students the opportunity to enhance their academic experience while earning college credit in the familiar surroundings of their own high school.

Current School Partners:

  • Houghton Academy (Houghton, NY)
  • Northstar Christian Academy (Rochester, NY)
  • The Charles Finney School (Rochester, NY)
  • Bishop Kearney (Rochester, NY)
  • Gates-Chili High School (Rochester, NY)

Details:

  1. As our partner, your high school would provide the course instructor, who becomes a dual enrollment instructor, but continues to be paid as part of your school’s regular loading. Qualified faculty are those who hold a Master’s degree in the dual enrollment course in question, or an area closely related area to the course they are teaching.

  2. Roberts would provide an established syllabus, registration / enrollment assistance, and faculty support (e.g., teaching our syllabus with our texts, submitting grades, etc.). Because instructional costs are covered as part of your teacher’s regular load, we can offer college credits to your students at the rate of $85 / credit hour.

  3. Our current options for dual-credit offerings include introductory courses in:

  • General Psychology (3 credits)
  • College Writing (3 credits)
  • Calculus (4 credits)
  • Introduction to Literature (3 credits)
  • Elementary Statistics (3 credits)
  • Computer Science I (3 credits)
  • Chemistry (4 credits)
  • Environmental Science (4 credits)
  • Biology (4 credits)

However, we are open to working with your school to meet the interests and needs of your students and faculty. All dual-credit course offerings are subject to our course enrollment expectations and to a faculty credential review. We would be more than willing to offer these or other courses.
