Angelicum Academy Program

Overview

Holy Apostles College & Seminary and the Ignatius-Angelicum Liberal Studies Program has designed a path for qualified home schooled students to earn Associate’s degrees (A.A.) at the completion of 12th grade, and a Bachelor’s degree (B.A.) by age 19.

Holy Apostles’ Associate’s degrees require 60 credits. Students who begin the Ignatius-Angelicum Liberal Studies, four-year, Great Books Program in 9th grade (minimum age 14, and up), may transfer 45 credits completed from that four-year program to Holy Apostles College.

Holy Apostles allows home schoolers and 11th and 12th grade high school students (with a minimum 2.5 GPA) to take 15 (or more) credits online or on campus. Combined, this allows home school students to earn a total of 60 college credits by their completion of 12th grade. Such students may then enroll in the Holy Apostles Associate’s degree program that same month, and receive their A.A. degree in Liberal Arts at the Summer term graduation of the same year.

In addition to the online application form, the following items are also required:

  • Official transcripts must be sent to Holy Apostles College from all high schools attended;
  • A typed essay from the student of approximately 500 words that provides a brief autobiography and the student’s reasons for choosing to study at Holy Apostles;
  • One letter of recommendation from one of the following:

– A recent educator, guidance counselor or academic mentor.

– A Catholic priest or a religious leader.

For the AA option –

The A.A. track includes the entire Great Books Program & Theology Online & five online courses with Holy Apostles College – a total of 75 credits.

To complete the A.A., students need only 45 credits from the Angelicum Academy plus 15 credits from Holy Apostles, but all students are encouraged to complete the 48 Great Books credits and the 12 Theology online credits so that they complete a total of 75 credits at the end of their time in the program.

The price for 60 credits or for up to 75 credits is the same, in any case, and breaks down as follows:
$1,875 per Semester for 8 semesters. Total = $15,000 for up to 75 college credits.
($325 monthly payments)

See http://www.angelicum.net/great-books-program/enrollment-form/ for more information.

For the BA option –

Students who complete the A.A. are encouraged to continue through their B.A. in any of the four majors offered by Holy Apostles College & Seminary – theology, philosophy, English in the Humanities and History in the Social Sciences. If students completed 75 credits in the A.A. track, then they are only 45 credits away from the B.A. at $320 per credit hour for a total remaining tuition cost of $14,400.

Total tuition cost for both the A.A. and the B.A. = $29,400.

Students may take the Holy Apostles courses when you are in the 11th and/or 12th grades, or later. Each of these courses is one semester. A.A. track students would need to complete 15 credits from Holy Apostles, specifically, these five courses:

PAS 161 Catechism Pillars I & II

PAS 162 Catechism Pillars III & IV

SCM 101 Mathematics among the Liberal Arts

SCM 201 Physics (with virtual physics lab) or SCM 220 Chemistry (with virtual chemistry lab)

Any elective, preferably a language course – Latin or Greek

Students who plan to (and do) complete two or more of the four Theology Online courses by Fr. Fessio, as a part of their A.A. track, prior to receiving their A.A. degree, will not be required to take the PAS 161 nor the PAS 162 Catechism Pillars courses listed above, as they are substantially equivalent courses. Rather, they will be required to take, in substitution thereof and at the same reduced tuition, two other HACS courses, specifically: any HACS elective, preferably a language course – Latin or Greek (3 credits); and any History in the Social Science elective (3 credits); If they complete only one of the Theology Online courses, then they would need to complete only the History in the Social Sciences elective.

Holy Apostles accepts the four Theology Online courses (taught by Fr. Joseph Fessio, S.J., Th.D.) which have been recommended by ACE Credit for 3 credits each, so a maximum of 12 credits, together with a maximum of up to 33 credits of the said Great Books program, (thus a total of 45 credits) towards its Associate of Arts (A.A.) in Theology degree. Students transferring said 45 credits would need to complete an additional 15 credits from Holy Apostles in order to earn their A.A. in Theology Degree. Normally this will require five of the following courses:

any two (2) of the following four language courses:

· GRK 201 Greek I
· GRK 202 Greek II
· LAT 201 Latin I
· LAT 202 Latin II
and any two (2) of the following three HACS philosophy courses:

· PHS 311 Logic
· PHS 414 Epistemology
· PHS 501 Ethics
and any (1) of the following Math/Science courses

· SCM 101 Mathematics among the Liberal Arts
· SCM 201 Physics (with or without optional 1-credit virtual physics lab)
· SCM 220 Chemistry (with or without optional 1-credit virtual chemistry lab)
· SCM 161 Earth Science
· SCM 171 Biology

Students who earn their Associate’s degree through the Holy Apostles-Angelicum Partnership while in home school (grades 9-12) or high school, may earn a further 15 credits then as well, enabling them to complete 75 credits towards their accredited bachelor’s degree (requires 120 credits) – that is nearly 2/3rds of their bachelor’s degree, for a fraction of the cost.

If I complete the four-year Great Books Program, and the four Theology Online courses as well as the five Holy Apostles courses, all while in high school (or home school equivalent), how many credits towards a bachelor’s degree would I have earned?

That’s 48 for the Great Books courses, 12 for the Theology Online, and 15 from Holy Apostles-a total of 75 credits towards the 120 needed for a bachelor’s degree. Thus 45 more credits would be needed to complete your B.A. If the student completes all 75 of the credits listed above, they will be eligible to take five courses in the summer following their scheduled graduation from high school (or home school equivalent), five courses in the fall and five courses in the spring, thus graduating with their 120 credit BA at the end of the Spring term, one year following their high school graduation.
