High school students in the greater Green Bay area can gain up to 16 college credits during high school through the College Credit Program offered by St. Norbert College.

Students can enroll in English, math, U.S. history and leadership classes that are taught by qualified teachers who have been specially selected and approved by the college. Classes are the same as those college students take on campus, and assignments and academic expectations are the same, as well.

Some of the benefits of earning college credit in high school include improving ACT scores, increasing academic confidence, having the opportunity to bypass basic college courses and saving money on tuition.

To enroll, students are required to be proficient in their chosen subject(s), demonstrate scholastic ability, have the recommendation of their high school teachers and take a pre-test. The cost per course is $180.

The participating high schools are Ashwaubenon High School, De Pere High School, Elkhart Lake High School, Gillett High School, Lourdes High School, Marinette High School, Neenah High School, St. Thomas Aquinas Academy, Notre Dame Academy, Oconto Falls High School, Plymouth High School, Pulaski High School, Seymour High School, Suring High School, West De Pere High School and Xavier High School.
