College-level Courses Delivered in Your High School

Saint Mary's University of Minnesota's Program for Advanced College Credit (PACC) provides learning experiences by offering college credit to private high school programs.

The Saint Mary's PACC program partners with high schools in Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois in order to bring Saint Mary's undergraduate-level courses into their classrooms. Earning college credit for a fraction of the cost of tuition, participating students can expect the same workload, learning activities, projects, and exams as the courses taught to first-year students at Saint Mary's.
