Taste of College

The Taste of College Program is a special admissions category to encourage currently enrolled high school juniors and seniors who show exceptional academic accomplishments to participate in college level-courses. Students will receive three college credits after successful completion of the course. High school seniors must be recommended by their high school counselor. Course offerings vary each semester. A special reduced tuition per course is in effect for this program, with a maximum of two courses permitted during the summer. There is a limit to the number of high school students. Interested students should apply online or contact Christina Tsimortos, Director of Undergraduate Admissions at 203-864-5076 or tsimortosc@sacredheart.edu.
