Young Scholars Program

Accelerate your preparation for college learning by taking classes at Misericordia University.

Misericordia’s Young Scholars Program provides high school students the opportunity to experience college while gaining useful credits to apply toward the fulfillment of course requirements at the college level. Such first-hand experience through the Young Scholars program is the perfect transition into the next chapter of your education and life.

In addition to being offered at a significantly lower cost, these introductory courses will help you acclimate to college level work, provide you with advanced standing that may mean lighter course-loads in the future, and encourage you to develop transferable skills for the future. You will be able to engage with peers and professors at the collegiate level, building confidence as well as an awareness of the expectations you will encounter as a matriculated college student. Moreover, Young Scholars at Misericordia receive the same service and support as its traditional student population. Misericordia faculty provide individualized attention in a small classroom setting to ensure the success of each student.
