Holy Cross Dual Credit Experience
Academic Partnership with OLLU
Holy Cross of San Antonio is proud to announce our Early College Experience. Since the fall of 2013, juniors and seniors have had the opportunity to earn dual credit with Our Lady of the Lake University. Expanding on this framework, current students will now have the opportunity to earn upwards of 30 college credit hours while completing their high school career. This Holy Cross Experience will allow qualified students to take any course available to an entering OLLU freshman.
Dr. Rene Escobedo, the principal of Holy Cross of San Antonio states, "It is our goal to provide the opportunity for our students to graduate with a college transcript and a high school diploma proving that they can succeed at the university of their choice."
"Dual Enrollment, though challenging, has given me the opportunity to prepare for college and work on study skills. I feel confident that I will be a success in my future courses because of the foundational concepts that Holy Cross has built. I was always able to count on students and faculty to advise me through this experience. Its positive impacts will continue to benefit me as I transition into college and progress into my career"

"I know that I am prepared to enter college thanks to the dual credit program. I now understand how to communicate with professors, navigate the campus, and manage all of my assignments. My favorite thing about dual credit is the new people I get to meet and the different perspectives I hear in class discussions. Dual credit has given me a glimpse of what college is really like, making me confident that I will thrive in a university setting."
