Message from Superintendent of Schools Dr. Daniel P. King
On behalf of the PSJA Board of Trustees and Administration I congratulate all of our graduates from the Class of 2015! Your commitment and dedication has paid off. We are proud of your accomplishments throughout your high school years and wish you many more accolades in years to come. I am happy to announce that out of approximately 1,900 graduates, 215 received their Associate Degree from South Texas College two weeks prior to their high school graduation, and 270 more graduated with certificates in various fields. Approximately 1,200 have already earned some college credit.
PSJA ISD’s Early College High School Program offers more than just two years of college credit. These students graduate with two years of successful experience in higher education that puts them above most of their peers when they enter the university. This ambitious plan has many PSJA graduates completing their Bachelor’s Degree in as little as two years. Many go on to graduate work or professional schools at a younger age; saving time and money. At PSJA, our message is Start College Now! Complete Early! Go Far!
PSJA ISD thanks the staff, parents and public/private funders for their support and dedication to the PSJA family and the district’s College3 initiative that is focused on College Ready, College Connected and College CompleteTM.
I also thank our graduates for taking the opportunities provided by our school district. Starting your college career while in high school is not easy, but now you have the experience to succeed in college and beyond. Congratulations!
