Are the Frederick mount courses designed and exclusive high school students? Or will they be taking classes with come enrolled mount students?
J Seaman
20:36
The part time classes at the Frederick campus are all Saint John's students.
monahan
21:17
Currently the courses taught at Frederick are exclusively high school students from SJCP in a face to face format. However, there may be other Catholic high school students who will zoom into the same courses at the Frederick campus.
Robyn Cincotta
21:22
Thank you. And the courses taught at Mount Saint Mary's campus are regular college courses?
Robyn Cincotta
21:49
Will they get full college credit for the courses taken at the Frederick campus, if they do so?
J Seaman
22:01
Correct. Our students integrate with all the students on the campus. They do have a freshman symposium all together as a group.
J Seaman
22:21
Yes - they get full college credit whether on the Frederick or Emmitsburg campus
Robyn Cincotta
22:28
Wow that's great!
Robyn Cincotta
22:44
Ah the experience self-advocating with professors is a good thing to learn!
monahan
22:49
All courses are regular college curriculum, however, the courses taught at the main campus are taught to both high school students and college students in the same section. Typically the college students are freshman.
J Seaman
22:59
Plus they get credit from us for their required courses-- such as English
Robyn Cincotta
23:17
Thank you.
Mark Leslie
28:35
Does enrolling in this program impact the student's ability to apply for scholarships in subsequent years (I believe it said the first year didn't qualify because of the discounted tuition)?
Robyn Cincotta
28:36
what is the cost involved for those students who want to take full time classes at the mount, versus the part time courses at the Frederick campus? Or is the cost the same?
J Seaman
28:54
Great question Mr. Leslie. She is going to cover that in one of the slides
Mark Leslie
29:04
TYVM
J Seaman
29:07
Mrs. Cincotta, that will be covered in one of the slides
Robyn Cincotta
29:12
Okay thank you
Maria Bedard
30:17
if they do part time Fall, do they have to do part time Spring (& vice versa)?
Robyn Cincotta
30:24
So the kids who take full time courses at the mount, they can still participate in saint johns sports teams?
J Seaman
30:25
Yes.
J Seaman
30:46
For part time- you choose one or 2 classes in the fall and 1 or 2 in the spring
J Seaman
31:02
And yes- those at full time mount can participate in all SJCP activities.
J Seaman
31:20
They will just need to plan their courses around those times.
J Seaman
31:38
They will also get all of SJCP resources such as college counseling
monahan
31:55
In terms of sports, we work with the SJCP students to devise a schedule that will work around their sports/practice schedules. So typically we would help them to create a schedule where all of their courses end by 1:30pm or 2pm.
Robyn Cincotta
34:02
what about financial aid?
J Seaman
34:13
There is no financial aid if you choose full time
Robyn Cincotta
34:16
Thank you Monahan!
J Seaman
34:25
It is a flat fee of 21,000
J Seaman
34:37
with the $700 comprehensive fee as well
Robyn Cincotta
34:58
Thank you
Mark Leslie
44:41
Do we have any SJCP students who didn't leave the Mount after completing this program for another school?
J Seaman
45:27
This past year I believe all of our first group matriculated to other schools although quite a few applied to the Mount
J Seaman
45:46
This year we are still waiting to hear from many of our seniors their final decisions on where they will attend
monahan
47:28
Yes, many applied to the Mount and were accepted. However, we really work with the students to help them to identify courses as distribution credits for whatever university they plan to attend. While we would love for them to remain at the Mount, we encourage them to share the names of the universities that they plan to apply to and work to guide them to the appropriate course work.
Mark Leslie
48:06
Thank you.
J Seaman
48:48
Like Liz said, the Mount is wonderful in helping our students plan for their college career- at the Mount or other places. They really have the students' best interests at heart.
Robyn Cincotta
53:06
Thank you for all this input!
monahan
53:18
Certainly
Robyn Cincotta
53:55
Question on the part time course offering at the Frederick campus -- will it be in-class instruction twice a week like at st. johns or will they have their own schedule ?
J Seaman
54:12
The classes meet M/W or T/Th in the morning
J Seaman
54:32
The students take the class at the campus and then come to Saint John's for the rest of their classes
J Seaman
54:49
So it's a schedule that mixes college and high school together
J Seaman
55:18
And the biggest part of your question- yes in person
Robyn Cincotta
55:37
Okay thank you. I dont' think I would want my student enrolled in full time courses at the mount, only to discover that they had gone fully online as a covid protocol. Sounds like the part time courses will followSJPS class schedules then.
J Seaman
56:17
The Mount this year has had hybrid classes and our full time students had the option to be in person or virtual like all the students at the Mount
Robyn Cincotta
56:25
Yes, it is the in-class instruction that is important for us. I don't see the benefit of college courses all online.
Robyn Cincotta
56:34
Oh! I thought the mount was all online this year
J Seaman
56:34
Our Frederick campus students have been in person
Robyn Cincotta
57:00
Thank you
monahan
57:06
The part time program offered at the Frederick campus is face to face and the SJCP students are taught by Mount faculty. In the past, students from other Catholic high schools, St. Maria Goretti, and Bishop Ireton have zoomed into the classes with the SJCP students.
Robyn Cincotta
01:00:00
That's interesting - they are taking classes also with students from other catholic schools!
monahan
01:01:28
Yes, typically we've had 3 or 4 other students from other Catholic high schools who have Zoomed into the courses from their high schools. The SJCP students are able to see them on a rather large screen in the classroom and they participate as if they are sitting in the room.
Mark Leslie
01:03:00
On transferring, usually don't schools try to fill their class in Freshman year, so when they go to apply for Sophomore year, aren't they competing for a small number of seats?
Robyn Cincotta
01:03:03
:) I'm sure the love that it is projected into a large screen!! ha.
J Seaman
01:03:18
They are still considered first year students
J Seaman
01:03:28
They just have sophomore status in terms of credits
Robyn Cincotta
01:04:40
correct me if I misunderstand, does this mean that a student who takes full course load at Mount Saint Marys and then attends school at another university after graduation, they will be actual transfers as sophmores?
J Seaman
01:05:00
They will not be transfers. Mrs. Anders is discussing now
Robyn Cincotta
01:05:05
Got it
Robyn Cincotta
01:05:09
First year students.
Robyn Cincotta
01:05:41
First year as a high school graduate. Makes sense.
Robyn Cincotta
01:05:56
accelerated graduation possibly
Robyn Cincotta
01:06:07
because of the additional credits you earned in high school
Robyn Cincotta
01:06:09
?
J Seaman
01:06:10
Yes possibly-- depending on the university and the program
Robyn Cincotta
01:06:47
that's great! you can register with the sophmores as a freshman!
Mark Leslie
01:07:49
Really helped. Thanks.
Will and Sophie Fleming
01:08:19
I know it varies by school, but Purdue also offered a parking pass and first choice for on-campus housing. (because she was classified as Sophomore)
Miranda Cincotta
01:10:19
Do you have to go full time to receive the amount of credits that classify you as a sophomore?
J Seaman
01:10:35
Great question Miranda
J Seaman
01:10:50
The full time will give you the most credits to classify as a sophomore
J Seaman
01:11:07
although- if you have AP credits that could combine with other college credits as well
Miranda Cincotta
01:11:35
Ok thank you!
Will and Sophie Fleming
01:15:22
What is the student isn't 18?
Robyn Cincotta
01:15:25
Mount Saint Marys students will be required to get the vaccine? How about SJPS? Or the Mount Frederick campus?
Will and Sophie Fleming
01:15:46
Not all students will be old enough for vaccine.
J Seaman
01:16:16
I don't have answers for that but from what I am reading, those ages may change for the vaccine as more studies come out
J Seaman
01:16:31
I will ask Barb to answer
Will and Sophie Fleming
01:16:36
thank you
Robyn Cincotta
01:16:40
these are experimental vaccines. Are they really going to be required? Or encouraged and/or offered?
J Seaman
01:17:11
Barb is addressing that now
Robyn Cincotta
01:17:17
I see that
Robyn Cincotta
01:17:19
thank you
Will Knotek
01:17:27
Here at SJCP, no decisions regarding the vaccine have been made as of yet. We will be sure to keep the community updated.
Robyn Cincotta
01:18:47
Regarding the summer offerings, is there a list of classes we can look at?
Robyn Cincotta
01:18:58
oh nevermind I see it
Robyn Cincotta
01:18:59

Robyn Cincotta
01:19:26
Actually, I could not open that link. Can someone send me the document please?
