As a Greats Honors Program student, you have a subscription to The Great Courses Plus™. This entitles you to a 50% discount off the regular price for the course lecture transcripts & Guidebook, and free shipping. The discounted price range is from $7.50 for both transcripts & Guidebook (for a 12-lecture course), to $ 37.50 (for an 84-lecture course). Transcripts & Guidebooks for courses with more than 12 lectures and less than 84 lectures would fall between those prices. Regular pricing without this discount would be double, so $30-$75 for both the transcript & Guidebook. Approximately 80% of The Great Courses Plus™ [...]

Of the 120 credits part of the GHP, 60 were reviewed and recommended for college-level credit (those being the Great Books courses [48 credits] and the Theology Online courses [12 credits]) by the American Council for Education (ACE CREDIT), and are accepted for transfer credit–in varying amounts, from some to all credits– at various colleges and universities. The remaining courses-all The Great Courses Plus™- though taught by Professors, nearly all with Ph.D.s teaching at various prestigious colleges and universities (which institutions are themselves accredited), have not been recommended for college-credit. At the college level, Individual courses are not “accredited”, only degree-granting [...]
27. If I wish to join the Associate’s degree (A.A.) track to Holy Apostles College, how does that fit in with the Great Honors Program?wes9042020-07-25T22:57:22+00:00
To earn their Associate’s degree by the completion of 12th grade, students in the Angelicum’s Great Books Program Associate’s degree track must complete a minimum of five courses with Holy Apostles College (“HACS”) online, with a total of 15 credits. These can be taken in 11th grade or higher, provided the student has a “C” or higher grade point average (GPA) since entering high and/or college-level studies. The required courses are detailed HERE28. In summary, the five Holy Apostle’s online courses required are: PAS 161 Catechism Pillars I & II PAS 162 Catechism Pillars III & IV SCM 101 Mathematics among [...]
26. I know the Great Books courses and Theology Online are available for college credit, are the Great Courses available for college credit?wes9042020-07-25T22:56:38+00:00
At present, only the Great Books Program and the four Theology Online courses are available for a total of 60 college credits, which is about two years of college where the credits are fully accepted. The Angelicum Academy Great Books Program and Theology Online courses were reviewed and recommended for college credit by the American Council for Education (ACE CREDIT).
25. I notice that the Theology Online courses by Fr. Joseph Fessio are a part of the Greats Honors Program. Are they included in the Greats Honors tuition? Are the Didache religion courses included in the GHP tuition too?wes9042020-07-25T22:55:57+00:00
The Theology Online courses are included in the GHP tuition for high school credit (if you wish to earn college credit for these courses there is a tuition cost of $750 per course). This is much like the Great Books courses tuition in that students must select either the Great Books college track or Associate’s degree tracks, to receive the college credit recommendation for those courses – the high school track has no college credit. The Didache religion courses are offered via My Catholic Faith Delivered (linked to from the Angelicum homepage - upper right) and cost from $29-40 for each [...]
24. I notice that the Academy’s live Ethics and Socratic Logic courses are part of the Greats Honors Program. Are they included in the Greats Honors tuition?wes9042020-07-25T22:54:39+00:00
Both The Great Courses Plus™ Ethics of Aristotle (12 lectures) and Introduction to Formal Logic (24 lectures), which are not live, are a part of the Greats Honors Program The Angelicum Academy does offer similar Ethics and Socratic Logic courses live, online. Greats Honors students may take these two courses either way – live or asynchronously. However the live Ethics and Socratic Logic courses –two of our most lively and popular - meet weekly (on Fridays) for one hour, September-May (30 classes each) and having live faculty online cost more to offer and so have an additional tuition charge, which may [...]
23. May one take the live, online Latin and/or Greek and/or Spanish courses in substitution for the Latin 101 or Greek 101 course?wes9042020-07-25T22:54:08+00:00
Yes. We encourage students to take our live courses whenever possible. We offer live Great Books, Ethics, Logic, Essay Writing & Composition, and Latin and Greek courses for grades 9-12.. In those cases it is usually also helpful (but not required) to watch The Great Courses Plus™ lectures in those subjects,to accompany the live courses, in which case there is no need to take the assessments (quizzes, tests) for those, since the live classes conduct their own tutoring and assessment. Full details at the Classical languages page HERE.
Yes, however there would ordinarily be no reason to do so. However if a student wishes to take some course(s) offered offline in our Homeschool Program and in some course(s) online in our Greats program, enrollment in both would be necessary. That would be $250 per year for the Homeschool Program, and $95 (x 10 months) for the Greats, in addition to the cost of the Great Books track selected (see chart above).
21. May I enroll in just the Great Books Program, or in just The Great Courses Plus™ portion of the Greats Honors program?wes9042020-07-25T22:53:14+00:00
Yes. The Great Books Program tracks may be enrolled in separately, HERE, as may The Great Courses Plus™ w/Academy grading, and assessment, mentoring and tutorials, etc. HERE.
