May has certainly been a big month for The Bridge School. I’m excited to bring you not only the first installment of our new monthly blog, but what a better way to kick it off than with an exciting announcement!
The Bridge School is proud to announce its new dual credit partnership with Lone Star College – University Park (LSC-UP). This agreement was put together to allow us to offer our students the opportunity to earn college credits and/or credits toward a workforce certification while earning high school credits from The Bridge School.
The Bridge School students will be able to sign-up for any of the dual credit courses offered at LSC-UP, and will have access to Lone Star resources such as the library, computer labs, etc. Students will be allowed to sign up for face-to-face courses (attendance at LSC-UP required), and/or courses delivered in an online format. All dual credit courses will start and end according to the Lone Star College calendar. Any student wanting to participate must be classified as a junior or senior and have taken and passed the TSI exam.
The Bridge School and LSC will be holding information sessions regarding this program in the near future (dates are TBD). However, it is our goal to start signing up interested students for either the Summer II session or fall session.
To Our Faculty & Staff
While the opportunities and flexibility for our students and parents have grown over the years, developing partnerships such as this one have been developed by our hardworking dedicated faculty and staff at The Bridge School.
That is why I’d like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank all of our faculty, staff and executive team who have worked tirelessly to advance the learning opportunities for our students. Without your dedication and passion it wouldn’t be possible to create opportunities like these for our students.
There will be more information coming soon for parents and students regarding this exciting opportunity so please be sure to check our website for more information as it becomes available.
