An early college school provides the high school-age students with a “seamless” pathway from high school to college.
HAIS allows the high school student to gradually integrate into college course work through his or her traditional high school degree plan. This integration requires dual enrollment, with the student having to show mastery of the knowledge and skills necessary for success (Compass or another HCCS designated requisite test).
HAIS is committed to giving individualized support for each student. Students who graduate from HAIS will potentially have, not only a Texas Scholar diploma, but also will accumulate transferable college credits to the post-secondary institution of their choice. Most Texas Colleges accept HCCS college credits. In both instances, HAIS will provide strong support to each student and the family in obtaining entrance to, and success in, higher education.
