Students require an 85 cumulative average over their first three years (two years for Juniors) to participate.  The courses are conducted at Kellenberg Memorial High School.  One of the benefits of the courses is that students can earn college credit while taking their regular high school classes.  The courses are taught by Kellenberg Memorial High School teachers during the regular school day.  Important details of each of the programs are as follows:

College Advantage Program with St. Johns University

University in the High School Program with Farmingdale State College

Molloy College Program

Hofstra Engineering Course

All scholarships are in addition to any other scholarships or financial aid offered by the participating school.  Kellenberg Memorial does not retain any of the fees that are paid towards college courses.  The total cost that you pay is paid directly to the sponsoring college or University.  

We receive many questions about the transferability of credits.  Each of the institutions issues transcripts, upon the student’s request, for classes completed.  It is the student’s responsibility to request a transcript directly from the school and provide it to the school he or she plans to attend.   The forms to request transcripts are available on the Kellenberg website or from each institution directly.   Please be advised that there is no way to predict if the college you/your child wishes to attend will accept these credits.  While the colleges represent that these credits may be accepted at a number of colleges, there is no guarantee that the college or program you/your child wishes to enroll in will accept these credits.  Therefore, if the transferability of credits is important to your/your child’s ultimate decision to enroll in one or more of the college credit courses, it is recommended that you contact the Admissions Office of any college you or your child wishes to attend and ask if the credits will be transferrable at the college.    You may also wish to visit a searchable database created by the University of Connecticut to get a general idea about the transferability of credits to specific institutions.  The website can be found at http://eceapps.uconn.edu/credit_transfer_database/ 

Please feel free to contact Mr. Cartier at (516) 292-0200 if you have further questions. College course request sheets will be handed out to students in late April and are due back in May 2020.  No paperwork is due at this time.
