COLLEGIATE HIGH SCHOOL TO HOST PARENT INFORMATION MEETING FOR PROSPECTIVE STUDENTS ON FEB. 21
Posted on: January 05, 2011
TEXAS CITY -- Collegiate High School will host a parent information meeting for prospective students at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 21, in the Learning Resource Center.
Collegiate High School is a COM program that gives local high school students an opportunity to begin their freshman year of college as a high school junior. By the time they graduate high school they’ll have an associate degree along with their high school diploma, and the opportunity to begin college as a junior.
The students return to the high schools in their respective home districts for extracurricular activities and participate in graduation ceremonies there as well.
“The Collegiate High School is the best kept secret in Galveston County,” CHS principal Sandi Belcher said. “Where else can you graduate with an associate degree prior to high school graduation at a fraction of the cost to attend a four-year institution?”
CHS, which meets on the COM campus in Texas City, offers a 40 percent reduction in tuition and fees and provides college textbooks.
The program is available to students from Clear Creek ISD, Dickinson ISD, Friendswood ISD, Hitchcock ISD, La Marque ISD, Santa Fe ISD and Texas City ISD, as well as private school and home school students.
COM’s core classes are transferrable to Texas Public Universities.
Attendees may RSVP or request more information by contacting Lodie Salazar at 409-933-8169 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
