    TEA Gives Crowley ISD Approval to Open Early College High School in Fall
    Crowley Collegiate Academy to increase college readiness and access for students in CISD
     
    (April 15, 2016) The Texas Education Agency gave Crowley ISD the green light today to open the new Crowley Collegiate Academy in fall 2016.
     

    This Early College High School (ECHS), in partnership with Tarrant County College (TCC), is an innovative option for students to simultaneously earn a high school diploma and an associate degree, with tuition and textbooks provided at no cost. 

    “The Crowley Collegiate Academy is a very exciting opportunity for our students and families that will help break down barriers to college,” said Dr. Dan Powell, CISD Superintendent. “We strive to provide excellence in education for all students in CISD and this is yet another way we are accomplishing that goal.”

    The district will work with TEA to complete required training activities this spring and summer and submit an agreement with TCC so it can be officially recognized as an Early College High School.

    The first year of the academy will host up to 100 freshman students. A new grade level would then be added each year until reaching grades 9-12. Current eighth grade students are invited to apply online here.

    The Crowley Collegiate Academy will be located inside the state-of-the-art Bill R. Johnson Career and Technology Education (CTE) Center, which is already home to the TCC Crowley South Campus Center.

    “Tarrant County College is excited to expand our longstanding partnership with the wonderful educators and students at Crowley ISD,” said Dr. Peter Jordan, President of TCC South Campus. “Early College High Schools expand higher education opportunities so that all students have the opportunity to succeed through rigorous high school and college courses.”
