Originally developed with a Carnegie Fund grant in 1975, Matteo Ricci College was recognized as an innovative academic experiment for its integration of eight years of high school and college into a six year baccalaureate humanities degree. Two separate academic tracks, Form I (high school level) and Form II (university level) were designed to omit redundancy in academic coursework. The original pilot enrolled students from Seattle Preparatory High School and later expanded to include other Seattle area high schools.
