Wilson recently signed a dual enrollment agreement with St. Maria Goretti High School that allows qualified Goretti 11th- and 12th-graders to take classes at Wilson. The accord, Wilson’s 10th dual enrollment agreement, also opens Wilson programs to faculty and staff of the private school in Hagerstown, Md.

Under the terms of the dual enrollment agreement, Goretti juniors and seniors with a grade-point average of at least 3.0 can enroll in and receive full college credit for up to two courses per semester. The students will take classes at Wilson unless a cohort of at least 12-15 students wants to enroll in the same course, in which case the class may be offered onsite at the high school and taught by a Wilson faculty member.

“These kinds of partnerships provide a path for students to earn college credits while they’re still in high school,” said Wilson Vice President for Enrollment David Boisvert. “Dual admissions agreements give high school students a head start in college, allowing them to finish their degree sooner and save money on tuition.”

For Goretti employees, the dual enrollment agreement, which took effect March 1, means staff and faculty can enroll in Wilson adult degree or graduate programs at a discounted rate.

Wilson continues to work with independent schools and school districts in the Tri-State area to provide dual enrollment opportunities. Current agreements include the Chambersburg Area, Greencastle-Antrim, Fannett Metal, Waynesboro Area and Cumberland Valley school districts, as well as with the Cumberland Valley Christian School, Global Vision Christian School, Shalom Christian Academy and the Franklin County Career and Technology Center.
