And with small classes and personalized attention, you’ll leave with the precise knowledge you came here to acquire.

So bring your ambition, get ready to pursue success, and enroll today. Because your next step starts with a single step.

High school students are eligible to enroll.


Regardless of how much formal education you’ve had already, you have natural talents and abilities. You may already be using these strengths in the workplace. Or you may need the right environment to put your skills to work, so you can be the best you can be.


We are currently enrolling students in certificate programs in health science and veterinary assisting, associate degree programs in technology and business, and executive certificates in design thinking and transformative leadership. These are growing fields that need individuals like you. We’ll make sure you’re ready for everything the job entails.

About Saint Joseph's College

We are a historic American institution with Catholic values. We believe that higher education takes many forms, including options outside of a  traditional college setting. As a result, we have adapted our programs around the needs of career-minded individuals, both inside and far beyond our surrounding community.


We offer online, in-person and hybrid programs at our stately campus in Rensselaer, Indiana, focusing on practical learning for achievement in growing fields. We believe our graduates should use what they learn here in the workplace, helping to grow and advance in the career of their choice deliberately and successfully.



Skill Development PROGRAM

We are invested in helping the teens of our community gain the tools and experience they will need to thrive in the workplace, starting an early age. If you are an area high school student, you may be eligible for our early start skill development program in the course of your choice, which may even qualify you for high school credit. These are rigorous courses aimed at adults, so your participation would be by special consideration. Please contact us for further details.
