Syracuse University Project Advance

In addition to more than 50 Advanced Placement (AP) and Honors classes, Canterbury offers several different Syracuse University Project Advance courses. The SUPA program was launched in 2019 and provides our students the opportunity to earn college-level credits while at Canterbury. Students may opt to take the course for Canterbury credit only or receive Syracuse University credit as well. Students graduate with their Canterbury transcript and a Syracuse transcript! 

SUPA classes are offered in the following academic departments:

Creative Nonfiction Writing
American History - To 1865
American History - Since 1865
Principles & Contemporary Issues in Sport Management / Business Management
Economics of Personal Finance 
Entrepreneurship / Global Economy
Presentational Speaking
Earth System Science (Lab)

The SUPA program gives faculty the opportunity to design curricula that mirror what is happening on the Syracuse University campus and lets Fifth and Sixth Form students take actual college courses without having to leave Canterbury. Canterbury’s site coordinator at Syracuse University, Associate Professor and Undergraduate Program Director Dr. Gina Pauline, shared her positivity and appreciation for our program, saying,

“The opportunity to take a college- level course in high school is terrific, and the program at Canterbury did an incredible job in its first year. I was extremely impressed by the level of dedication of the students and instructors for the courses. Their final projects (both the paper and presentations) represented a high level of academic work! I am excited to continue to partner with Canterbury in the future.”
