New Partnership With Delaware Valley University Enables Solebury School Students to Earn College Credits


At an official signing ceremony yesterday, Solebury School embarked on an exciting new partnership with Delaware Valley University. Solebury School's Multivariable Calculus students now have the opportunity to earn college credits through a program developed by the university.

"We are excited to partner with Delaware Valley University to offer college credits for our Multivariable Calculus students, the first step in what we hope will be an ongoing collaboration with this strong institution of higher education and leader in the community," said Head of School Tom Wilschutz. "It provides a wonderful opportunity for some of our faculty to be recognized for their ability to teach at the university level, and an equally valuable opportunity for some of our students to earn college credits while still pursuing their studies in the small, nurturing environment that is Solebury School."

The credits will count toward both high school and college graduation requirements and enable some of our high-achieving students to get a jumpstart on their bachelor's degrees, saving them between $350 and $450 per credit hour.

"Through this program, a student could go into college with credits in addition to Advanced Placement AP credits," said Art Goon, Delaware Valley University's vice president of enrollment management, at the ceremony. "Innovative partnerships like this one help with increasing access and affordability, reducing student debt, and helping students graduate on time or even early."

The new partnership with Delaware Valley University speaks directly to a goal outlined in Solebury School's Strategic Plan for the next 20 years, adopted in 2016, of adding and strengthening our strategic partnerships.
