Dual Enrollment

HACC Dual Credit Program

Lancaster Catholic has partnered with Harrisburg Area Community College to provide students with the opportunity to earn HACC credits within our building. There is no additional fee for these classes; however, a placement test is required. Due to HACC regulations, these classes are only open to juniors and seniors. The acceptance of HACC credits by other colleges/universities is ultimately determined by each individual institution. The HACC dual credit classes are as follows:
 
English 101 - Composition (Seniors Only)
English 102 - Literature (Seniors Only)
History 103 - History of the United States I
History 104 - History of the United States II
History 201 - Western Civilization I
History 202 - Western Civilization II
 
Students who voluntarily withdraw from a HACC dual credit class after the HACC refund date will be required to reimburse LCHS for any registration and/or credit costs. Students who are required to drop a scheduled HACC course due to scheduling conflicts will not be required to reimburse any fees.

Millersville Entrepreneurial Program

Lancaster Catholic has partnered with Millersville University's Entrepreneurship Program to provide students with the opportunity to earn Millersville credits within our building. There is no additional tuition fee for these classes and a placement test is not required at this time. Students may be asked to purchase specific materials by the professors. These classes are only open to juniors and seniors. The acceptance of Millersville credits by other colleges/universities is ultimately determined by each individual institution. The Millersville dual credit classes are two separate classes that meet in consecutive semesters. They are as follows:

ENTR 301 - Art of Entrepreneurship
COMM 390 - Social Media Campaigns

  • Must be recommended for college-level course work by the staff of LCHS
  • Meet all admissions requirements for the institution of choice as determined by the college's application process

Students participating in a dual enrollment program outside of the high school are responsible for payment to those institutions. Please contact the admissions office at each school for more information regarding tuition costs/fees. Lancaster Catholic tuition will be reduced to 1/3 the price of regular tuition for these students.
