It is the mission of the Collegiate High School (CHS) to prepare high school students to earn college credits in order to achieve their goals by providing a rigorous foundation of academic, interpersonal, and work-readiness skills, leading to further education and employment in high demand occupations in the state and global economies.
Through specially designed transitions classes and activities, CHS students are allowed to enroll as full-time college students at the College of the Mainland. With the support of their local high school, students may remain enrolled in their local high school, but complete their school day on the college campus. Students may continue their participation in extracurricular and UIL activities while enjoying the rigors of college academics. Students enrolled in CHS will be required to take the STAAR EOC assessments at their zoned high school campus.
Students and parents should strongly consider that students entering this program will be considered college students and expected to perform accordingly. High school procedures will not be followed in the college classes and college instructors follow their own grading and attendance procedures. Progress reports and other parent notifications will not be sent home from college classes. Students must be mature enough to motivate themselves to be successful in an adult environment.
By optimizing dual credit opportunities, students may complete high school graduation and associate degree requirements simultaneously. Limited space is available for students in CCISD. Students interested in applying should complete an application and turn it into their high school counselor. The District will review all applications from March through April prior to final decisions made by CHS.
Students are encouraged to take college entrance exams beginning in their junior year. The SAT and ACT are universally accepted college entrance exams for all colleges. Students may take the SAT and ACT as many times as they wish to improve on scores. Colleges will consider the student's highest score. The TSIA2 is another college entrance exam option for students interested in enrolling in public colleges and universities in Texas. The TSIA2 is usually taken during the senior year if TSIA exemption requirements have not been met with an ACT or SAT score.
