“Holy Apostles’ Take Credit! Program has been a wonderful experience. The teachers present the material in a very Catholic manner, nurturing both the mind and soul at once. It was a pleasure to study under these professors, and I would definitely recommend Holy Apostles’ Take Credit! Program to any high schooler looking to take college classes while still in high school.”
