Course Ahead

The Course Ahead program allows high-achieving high school juniors and seniors, capable of meeting an increased challenge, the opportunity to earn college credit through special high school courses.

Georgian Court University has evaluated select courses in participating high schools and has approved the faculty, syllabi, and textbooks for college credit. The classes are offered at a reduced rate to high school juniors and seniors, who must apply to the program. Students who wish to attend the university upon high school graduation have to complete a standard application for admissions. Upon completing a Course Ahead course(s), students can request a transcript to be sent to another institution.

This program delivers on-site coursework through a partnership between Georgian Court and the high school. Experienced high school teachers who have a Master’s degree in the content area and hold adjunct faculty status at GCU teach the classes; GCU professors act as liaisons.

Courses are presently offered at the following area high schools:

  • Academy of Allied Health and Science
  • Donovan Catholic High School
  • High Technology High School
  • Hunterdon Counties Academies
  • Manasquan High School
  • Ocean Township High School
  • Red Bank Regional High School
  • St. John Vianney High School
