School Choice

HAIS Early College Magnet Program

  • HAIS, an Early College Magnet High School, has provided students with a world of opportunities and a seamless pathway from high school to college since 2006. HAIS students integrate Houston Community College (HCC) coursework through their traditional high school degree plan. Students will have to show mastery of the knowledge and skills necessary for success upon graduation. Students who graduate from HAIS will potentially have an Associate Degree alongside their high school diploma and will also accumulate transferable college credits to the post-secondary institution of their choice. In both instances, HAIS will provide strong support to each the student and the family in obtaining entrance to, and success in, higher education.

  • Welcome and thank you for your interest in HAIS.

    Organized campus tours will be held on Thursdays, 1pm beginning Thursday, November 17, 2022.  If you are interested in a tour prior to the organized Magnet Thursday dates, please contact Ms. Alderete (
