NU Option

Our program, NU Option, gives Roycemore students the upper hand in the college application process by allowing students to take classes at Northwestern University for credit.

Roycemore School has a strong partnership with Northwestern University, including an arrangement whereby our Upper School students can attend classes there once they have exhausted our offerings in a certain subject. For example, if a student has taken AP Calculus at Roycemore their junior year, they may then attend the next level math course at NU their senior year. This is true of all subjects with the exception of science. 

“Roycemore is a gem of an independent school. Class sizes are intentionally small, providing teacher and students with the ability to connect on a personal level. Students benefit from course plans that are challenging and personalized. Roycemore Upper School students have the ability to take courses at Northwestern University, earning college credit while still in high school. Roycemore is the only independent School to offer this unique opportunity to students and it provides them with the ability to excel at their own pace.”  

– Jonathan Holloway, President of Rutgers University, Former Provost of Northwestern University

We are very proud  to celebrate the successes of our Roycemore Upper School students who took part in our NU Option program last quarter. Our students studied alongside older college students in rigorous classes that demanded much from them. Their hard work paid off as they all earned high grades and college credit.
