Superintendent Dr. Tommy Wallis talks with Bryan Collegiate High School principal Christina Richardson about opportunities for students at the early college high school.
Tommy Wallace superintendent the Bron Independent School District in welcome back to our video blog with me today is Christina Richardson principal of our Bryan collegiate we're very excited to have such a program in our district and we're excited to have such a later is Christina leaving this campus so Christina if you would just break leak open about the school in what the requirements are to get into school or they ever graduate high school and it's completely free and there are no fees tuition tuition is covered by Blinn and then Bryan ISD covers textbooks and other things that we have sew-in over before Year's end up being about a $15,000 College savings for parents $50,000 what's the average student graduates here how many college credit hours do they typically have what's the average what 45 okay so then tell me about if you will extra Creek track Japanese people in the community want to know about this program cuz it's one of the most sought-after and well-known can I District they want to know about extracurricular activities and what we do besides just what we're doing here and they have anything to do with your Cricket different clouds that since we have guitar Club Photography and National Honor Society student council there's about 10 different clubs all together and then issue how's the starter in Emerald soccer and the students they're not playing UIL competitive soccer but they are playing local school such a nasty Joe's Brazos Christian and other Charter private school and I done very well I might add because I stay comply and I got a very very good job about how many students are in Tron toys in hospital check allow in about 115 years of her grade level so that we're never over more than Route 404 20 and so we're meant to be a small school all the time that's part of our support structure because it is difficult you're not just a high school senior a call at the same time please student Supply tablet they have college ideas like all when students to and the campus is completely open to them like it is for all listed so it is challenging and so the small environment is part of the support structure as well as other things that we have in place play The Freshman going to the college classes how they adapt to that and then how to blend professors accept freshman freshman high school students into that college classes Colony as their first plane class and they take it both semesters and so are Kinesiology instructors are great and they really kind of set the pace for them knowing what is a syllabus how to behave in a college class with the expectations are and then their sophomore year they're not going to take two to three one classes junior year about half of their time will actually be on the campus by the time they're seniors there they're about 95% of the time on the bling campus mixed in with other ones too center console I had to graduate classes and Anna's two years 100% of those students have all been accepted to either a two-year or four-year institution that they've chosen to go on to some of our students have chosen to continue on a blend to finish a specific associates degree or program there and such as the nursing program and then since I have gone on to for your University's at A&M Sam Houston and Dallas Baptist the Naval Academy until Oliver Texas and when who's going to take one work on that strongest to say the cheese is it is more rigorous I mean is it talks about Pockets through that because of you know we open the school up to anybody board has approved the fact that anybody can transfer into the servine Collegiate so if you would tell us a little about the curriculum Buddy needs to remember and think about is a typical high school has 4 years to get a food ready for college we know they are in college the moment they walk in our door and so we are not the teaching the content but the academic still how to study time management you've got to turn stuff in on time you got to be able to take notes so both of those things whether our talents here and so the expectations are high but there's a lot of support built-in we have every citizen roles in a call Passport place called past and it teaches them all the skills that they need the teachers have tutorials we have a Key Tutors we have all types of things that can you get the help they need also have access to the Writing Center and the blend Learning Center to get additional help as well so it is challenging anything to come in with if not you know they don't forget to tell if they don't have to have a super high-speed what they have to have is determination it doesn't Fairweather academic ability is as long as they're coming in knowing I want to work hard and I'm going to work hard will you be here Knology in really the best thing around in struggling called the flipped classroom and with our students today and the technology resources that I have tell misses you guys at start here at my Collegiate because that's something that we it's a district are music across our Creek Embassy and also tell me what pastor either at home or at school after-hours they record a video and it's typically considered part of the class is going to be where they need to take notes or if it's that direct instruction case where the teachers mostly lecturing and so students watch that video at home it's accessible through YouTube so they don't have to special software they like that and said they want the video the night before class take notes from it and then they go to class and then that frees up class time instead of doing Lester there now doing activities that relate to the content but they're getting more in-depth and doing more Hands-On activities the process to get a student in early for body collision High School the deadline is on things people know how to get in is going on right now our first deadline is March 1st and so that's for all of our Bryan ISD students to give
