Supa Program

Syracuse University Project Advance

One of the hallmarks of our academic program is our involvement with Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA). We have five faculty members who have trained with SUPA to offer Syracuse University courses for credit to our juniors and seniors. Students register online as non-matriculated students of SU, and upon completion of their dual enrollment courses receive an SU transcript in addition to their high school course credit. We are the only school in Vietnam to offer this program.

Syracuse University Project Advance (SUPA) is a cooperative program between Syracuse University (SU) and your high school that allows high school students to enroll in SU courses. Teachers who are also adjunct SU instructors teach these classes in the high school, following the curriculum and guidelines established by SU. SUPA enables high school students to gauge their ability to do college work prior to full-time college study. Upon successful completion of an SU course, students are awarded SU transcripts that record credits earned. These credits are transferable to hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide. Note that there is a per-credit tuition charge of $112 per credit hour associated with SU courses, although this charge is significantly discounted compared to regular Syracuse University tuition fees.
