Prospective Parent Meeting to showcase COM Collegiate High School
Posted on: October 17, 2013
Parents and students can discover how COM Collegiate High School can help students reach their goals and earn a high school diploma and an associate degree simultaneously. The program will host a meeting for prospective parents and students Oct. 22 at 6:30 p.m. in the Learning Resource Center Auditorium.
The presentation will outline the benefits and challenges of the program that is open to students as young as freshmen in private schools, home schools and Dickinson, Hitchcock, Texas City, Santa Fe and La Marque High Schools.
Allowing students to enjoy the best of both worlds, the COM Collegiate High School lets students to take all of their high school and college classes at the COM campus while remaining eligible for extracurricular activities at their home high school.
Students also take transitions classes, which offer tips on study habits, time management and life skills to prepare them for success at a university or in a career.
“Most of our graduates continue their education at a university and thrive there,” said Collegiate High School principal Sandi Belcher. “Others enter the workforce with their associate degree, which prepares them to earn much more than if they only had a high school diploma.”
Challenging students academically since 2004, the COM Collegiate High School prepares students to excel academically and socially.
“(Professors) challenged you but were willing to give extra help if you ever needed it,” said Kelsey Buchanan, Collegiate High School 2013 valedictorian, who is now pursuing a bachelor’s degree at Baylor University. “Now I know what to expect and who to talk to in college. I couldn’t have asked for a better transition. I think it was one of the best decisions I’ve made.”
