Middle College/Early College High School Expansion Grant Program Preliminary Selection List
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is pleased to inform you that the following applications have been preliminarily selected to receive a grant for the Middle College/Early College High School Expansion Grant Program.
The purpose of the Middle College/Early College High School Expansion Grant Program is to ensure the continued success, sustainability, and, where appropriate, expansion of Middle College High Schools and Early College High Schools, which give students who typically would not pursue postsecondary studies an opportunity to complete high school and a set amount of college-level coursework in an academically supportive environment. Additionally, this grant seeks to provide other institutions interested in establishing Middle or Early College High Schools with information that will allow them to implement effective and successful programs. The primary goals of this Middle College/Early College High School Expansion Grant are to:
increase student achievement, as evidenced through improved Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills scores and increased credit accrual;
increase the number of students who graduate from high school college-ready, as demonstrated through credit accrual, dual credit and concurrent enrollment participation, and enrollment in rigorous coursework in a college preparatory curriculum; and
increase the college success of students, as demonstrated through college credit accrual and dual credit and concurrent enrollment participation.
