Two West Hartford-based educational institutions – the University of Saint Joseph and Northwest Catholic High School – have announced a concurrent enrollment program.


West Hartford’s University of Saint Joseph (USJ) and Northwest Catholic High School (NWC) have established a concurrent enrollment program through which NWC  students earn USJ credit for designated NWC courses.

Each year NWC and USJ will specify NWC courses to be taught the following academic year by designated NWC faculty.  USJ will review and approve the course syllabus, curriculum and NWC faculty as being equivalent to a specified USJ course.  NWC faculty who are approved to teach NWC/USJ concurrent enrollment courses will be recognized as a USJ Faculty Fellow.

“USJ is excited to embark on this wonderful partnership with Northwest Catholic and provide their students with the opportunity to take college level classes,” stated Rhona Free, president of University of Saint Joseph.

“We strive to continually enhance the educational experience of our students,” added Northwest Catholic High School Associate Principal Jennifer Montoney. “Our collaboration with University of Saint Joseph allows us to provide college level classes with college approved curriculum and teachers.”

Students will receive USJ credit for the designated USJ course number and title and will receive a USJ transcript and certificate at the end of each course. Students enrolled in NWC/USJ concurrent enrollment courses will also be provided with a USJ identification card and access to USJ’s computer network and learning management system and library.
