    Higher Start Program at CHS Kicks Off
    Months of preparation, meetings, assessment and paperwork has resulted in 73 freshman students enrolled in the new Higher Start program offered at Corsicana High School.
     
    Higher Start Orientation
    Higher Start, a program designed to provide the opportunity for entering 9th graders to graduate with their high school diploma and their Associate’s degree, was introduced to incoming freshman students and parents last spring. Through a partnership with Navarro College, qualified students immediately begin dual credit classes and continue on a degree pathway through their four years in high school.
     
    “We have always had good enrollment and interest in the dual credit offerings and Advanced Placement courses at CHS,” said Dr. Diane Frost, superintendent of CISD. “We (CISD) were ready to take this opportunity to the next level. Encouraging students to complete college courses is not just an academic benefit to the student, the financial benefit is a huge incentive.”
