Like Academy or College Preparatory or Country Day, “Early College” for high school students is a category of school. Like these other categories, it can mean different things for different schools.
What Early College means at Fontbonne is that we are intentionally designing and sustaining a student-centered learning environment that is collegiate in (1) curriculum, (2) pedagogy, (3) culture, and (4) student life experience.
Our Early College emphasis will enable us to programmatically maximize your 11th and 12th Grader’s ability to attain transferable college credit while cultivating those distinct characteristics, attributes, and skills she would have otherwise acquired during her freshman or sophomore year in college.
Please take a few minutes to review the following Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) about Early College. Additionally, Barbara Ryder, our Assistant Head of School for Academics, is pleased to respond to your questions via email at BRyder@FontbonneAcademy.org or schedule a time to speak by phone.
