Spring 2022 courses will begin on Monday, January 17th and conclude on Thursday, May 5th.
The courses listed below will be offered to students from select high schools. This will allow a rich learning experience with class projects and discussions involving fellow students and Saint Francis University faculty, all set in an online learning environment.
The courses selected are intentionally chosen to allow high school students to explore different career paths, perhaps choosing one course from two of the career paths. Alternatively, students already focused on one career path can proceed deeper in the career direction by taking both courses in that general area.
