Hundreds of Socorro Independent School District (SISD) students will earn college credit over the summer break by participating in the SISD Dual Credit Summer Program, June 5-30 at Americas High School.
The program, now in its second year and a first-of-its-kind in the area, is one of Team SISD’s endless opportunities that prepares students for college, careers and life. The four-week summer session will allow high school students to earn college credit for two courses. Students may take Education 1300, Speech 1321, Government 2305, Economics 2301, English 1301 or Criminal Justice1301 and 1306, at no cost.
More than 350 students have enrolled in the Summer Dual Credit Program, said Nancy Torres, SISD’s advanced academics coordinator.
“This year we are offering additional courses,” Torres said. “This is a great opportunity for 11th-grade students to earn college credit before their senior year of high school.”
The program is a collaboration between Team SISD and El Paso Community College. Transportation and cafeteria services will be provided for students.
