The Journey to Higher Education

High School students enrolled in concurrent credit courses may earn high school and college credit, during the high school day, on the SJMS campus. We have formed partnerships with two local institutes of higher learning to provide concurrent credit options for our students. Historically, we have offered concurrent credit in English and Mathematics courses through Kansas State University Polytechnic. Our partnerships have allowed us the opportunity to expand the classes offered through KSU-P and add concurrent courses through Salina Area Technical College.


K-State Polytechnic Enrollment

First semester, qualified juniors and seniors may choose from the following list of dual credit courses classes offered on our campus through KSU-Polytechnic

College Algebra

Second semester, qualified juniors and seniors may enroll in the following dual credit courses through KSU-Polytechnic

To meet qualifications, cadets must complete the Kansas State University Polytechnic application process for high school students. You will find this application and information at:

Parents will utilize the same website to pay tuition and fees for KSU-P concurrent credit courses. Fees include tuition of $122.00 per credit hour, plus books and materials. All concurrent courses offered are three credit hour courses.

Salina Area Technical College Concurrent Classes

Recently, we also formed a partnership with Salina Area Technical College. SATC is accredited through the Higher Learning Commission. SJMS cadets have the opportunity to earn concurrent credit through SATC in the following first semester courses:

Composition I
Psychology
Public Speaking

To meet qualifications, cadets must complete an application, available from the Academic Dean upon request. Parents will pay SATC tuition, fees, and books directly. The cost per credit hour is $77.00 plus books and materials. All concurrent courses offered through SATC are three credit hour courses.

All courses will be delivered online with a professor teaching the class. A teacher will be in the SJMS classroom with concurrent credit students to assist and ensure the process runs smoothly.
