Jenkintown’s Manor College, founded in 1947 by the Byzantine Ukrainian Sisters of Saint Basil the Great, has officially become a partner with the Abington Art Center, and thus introduced The Artist Scholars Program at the school, according to the Ukrainian Weekly.
Through the partnership, students who successfully complete designated courses and workshops at the Abington Art Center will be eligible to receive up to 12 transferable college credits in art for Manor College. Students enrolled in the program will also be eligible for additional scholarships and substantial tuition discounts through Manor College.
The purpose of the agreement is to encourage students who are taking classes at the Abington Art Center to further continue their education as a Manor College student.
Manor College is a private two-year institution offering transfer and career-oriented programs to traditional age and adult students.
Manor College is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, and offers more than 30 academic programs, concentrations and certificates, including advanced degrees through its University Center.
