Earn College Credit in High School

For over 20 years, Matteo Ricci Institute has been offering college courses in local Catholic high schools through our Consortium Program. Consortium courses are taught by qualified high school faculty under the supervision of Seattle University faculty. Students who successfully complete the course(s) are eligible to earn college credit. The college credit is transferable to most colleges and universities.

Courses offered include:

  • CISS 1200M Poverty in America (5 credits) 
  • HUMT 1325M Intro to Peace and Justice Studies (5 credits)
  • HUMT 1500M Composition: Language and Thought (5 credits) 
      Note: not all courses are offered at all schools
