Elmhurst University — Senior Option Program
In 1995, IC Catholic Prep and Elmhurst University designed the Senior Option Program to enable exceptional ICCP students to take advanced courses in the areas of mathematics, science and world language. This program allows our students the opportunity to take advanced course offerings after they have successfully completed the ICCP offered AP courses and have fulfilled their graduation requirements. ICCP students have a unique and valuable opportunity to take a college course and earn college credits.
Since its inception, the Senior Option Program has benefitted many of our talented students. In recent years, several of our seniors have even started their college careers with as many as 27-30 credit hours due to AP credits and courses taken at Elmhurst University.
