The College of St. Scholastica, a 104-year-old private Catholic Benedictine institution, has commenced its fall semester in Arizona with two milestones: opening a new office in downtown Phoenix, and planning for a first-ever spring social work cohort.
On Nov. 1, St. Scholastica’s administrative staff became headquartered at 3550 N. Central Ave., Suite 1020, in Phoenix. Social work faculty already have office space at Mesa Community College (MCC) and Phoenix College. Sixty-five students are working to complete various St. Scholastica degree programs and study areas at those institutions.
St. Scholastica recently began enrolling students for its first-ever spring cohort for social work students at MCC. Enrollment in the College’s social work program reached an all-time high this fall with 41 students. St. Scholastica also has six students in its Doctorate of Nursing Program (DNP), 15 students in its Health Informatics and Information Management programs and three students in its Transitional Doctor of Physical Therapy Program.
“We are thrilled that St. Scholastica’s programs and mission continue to be warmly embraced and welcomed in Arizona,” said Maria Laughner, St. Scholastica’s Arizona regional director. “We will continue to offer programs that meet the increasing demand for our mission of providing intellectual and moral preparation for responsible living and meaningful work.”
