The Advanced Placement (AP) Program is supported by the College Board, a not-for-profit organization that connects students to college success and opportunity. AP is a rigorous academic program built on the commitment, passion, and hard work of students and educators. The AP Program enables students to take college level courses and exams and to earn college credit or placement while still in high school. It is the mission of St. Thomas More’s AP Program to provide a curriculum that is designed to advance the student’s analytical thinking skills, writing abilities and knowledge in specific subject areas, not to strictly pass the AP test.

Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP)
St. Thomas More High School and Cardinal Stritch University have partnered to create a Concurrent Enrollment Program (CEP). This program allows high school students to experience a college curriculum from high school instructors who have been approved to teach selected Stritch classes at our campus while concurrently earning high school and college credit. St. Thomas More students who choose to enroll in CEP from Cardinal Stritch University and pay the substantially reduced tuition rate for the college credit are admitted to the University as “non-degree seeking students.”

These classes are worth three college credits, and the 2020-2021 regular Undergraduate tuition rate is $880 per credit ($2,640 for a 3-credit course). However, Cardinal Stritch is offering these courses at a substantially discounted rate of $133 per credit ($399 for a 3-credit course, an approximate 85% discount rate). In order to receive the college credits from Cardinal Stritch, students will register and pay a fee of $399 per class. Payments can be paid online by clicking the button below. Please note that students enrolled in these classes do not have to pay the fee, but then they will only receive credit for high school.
Please keep in mind:
All CEP classes are on a weighted grading scale at St. Thomas More. Students must earn a B- or higher to earn an extra grade point. However, grades will not be weighted on the college transcript.
Upon application or enrollment at a postsecondary educational institution, students will be asked to submit this college transcript. Grades on this transcript may become part of a student’s permanent record. Credit may not be awarded at all colleges and universities for these courses.
