ENC, South Shore Christian Academy Launch Pre-Matriculation Credit Program
Published: 2012-10-16

South Shore Christian Academy students who complete a new advanced biology course will be able to earn up to eight credit hours of college credit from Eastern Nazarene College, thanks to a new Pre-Matriculation Credit Program between the two institutions.

Through the program, SSCA students may enroll in the college-level biology course if they meet certain academic prerequisites. The course, which will be taught on SSCA’s Weymouth campus, will meet four days a week for one hour, plus two additional hours of laboratory time, with some labs held on the ENC campus. Students who pass the spring and fall semesters of the course with a grade of C or better will receive four credit hours per semester, for a total of up to eight credit hours, from Eastern Nazarene College.

“We are pleased to be able to offer South Shore Christian Academy students this opportunity to get a head start on their college course work,” said Dr. Timothy Wooster, academic dean and provost at Eastern Nazarene College. “ENC and South Shore Christian Academy share a common goal of offering students an academically rigorous education within a spiritually fulfilling Christian environment, and this Pre-Matriculation Credit Program will enable SSCA students to complete challenging, college-level coursework while still in high school.”

Jill Stiles, teacher and chair of South Shore Christian Academy’s Science Department, said, “We are excited about this partnership between two institutions each possessing very strong science departments. The transferable credits offered through participation in this program provide a greater opportunity than the AP Exam did for our high school students to earn college credit.”

SSCA Director of Academic Affairs Kristen Jones agreed. “We look forward to continuing our partnership with ENC not only in the area of biology, but expanding it to other disciplines in the near future,” Jones said.
