Viterbo, Regis Catholic Schools announce partnership

LA CROSSE (WKBT)- La Crosse’s Viterbo University and Eau Claire-based Regis Catholic Schools have announced a new partnership.

Regis students will now be able to take online Viterbo college courses for free and have access to other Viterbo-sponsored workshops.

Viterbo and Regis’s presidents both signed an official partnership Thursday on Viterbo’s campus. Viterbo president Rick Trietley said the agreement is a commitment to encouraging Catholic education from high school through college.

“We believe that exposing high school students to our campus on a more regular basis, allowing them to get up to a year of college credit, will make it easier to decide to just move to Viterbo University,” Trietley said.

Regis will now also have their sophomore student retreats on Viterbo’s campus.

Viterbo hopes to add a partnership with Pacelli High School in Stevens Point.
