Early College Program Recognitions

Students presented with HCC dual credit certificates of achievement
One highlight of the May 18 monthly meeting of the SBISD Board of Trustees was the awarding of certificates to high school students for outstanding achievement in Early College programs based on partnerships with the University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) and Houston Community College-Spring Branch (HCC-Spring Branch).

Early College programs like these provide our high school students an opportunity to earn up to two years of transferable college credit by the time of graduation. The programs are best suited for the highly motivated, academically driven, and mature student who seek to be challenged by college-level coursework.

Certificates of achievement were presented to 23 Stratford High students who took part in the UHD program. Eleven other students who attend Northbrook and Spring Woods high schools earned HCC certificates of achievement.
