Catholic Central High School and Siena College Launch “Crusader to Saint” Academic Partnership



Beginning Fall 2019 CCHS seniors can take college-level courses at Siena campus while finishing high school

Troy, NY – Catholic Central High School of Troy, NY and Siena College today announced the launch of the “Crusader to Saint” academic partnership allowing senior class students to take college level courses on Siena’s campus, while completing their high school academic requirements.

Beginning in Fall 2019, students who attend Catholic Central will be able to apply to the program and meet with Siena College admissions counselors to identify areas of interest and associated coursework. Students will be able to enroll in up to three courses per semester in business, management, history, political science and the arts. Students will have the ability to earn up to 24 college credits during their Senior year of High School through this program. More information is available on the Siena College website: Crusader to Saint Program, a partnership with Siena College and Catholic Central High School

“This program will not only enhance the academic experience offered at Catholic Central, it brings together two of the Capital Region’s strongest academic institutions.” said Ridge Harris, Chairman of the Catholic Central High School Board of Trustees, “We’re so excited for our current and future students who will have the opportunity to participate in this amazing program.”

"Siena will be pleased to welcome to our campus the Catholic Central seniors who are eager to begin their college journey. This will be an excellent opportunity for them to explore liberal arts education at the college level, to contemplate which major and career path could be a right fit for them, and how they can impact society for the better," said Siena College President Br. F. Edward Coughlin, O.F.M., Ph.D.

“We believe Catholic education is about unlocking potential and the opportunities this affords our high school students are sure to be endless”, said Giovanni Virgiglio, Diocesan Chancellor and Superintendent of Schools for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Albany. “Partnerships are most powerful when our shared ministries to educate young adults beautifully align. One’s journey from Crusader to Saint will certainly create a cohort of graduates that will make the world a better place.”

“The student experience at Catholic Central will be transformed by this program in a positive way,” said Christopher Signor, Principal of Catholic Central. “We’re proud to offer this program to Catholic Central students and their families, and are thankful for Siena’s partnership. This unique program will expand the possibilities of the students who walk through these halls.”
