    Funds2Orgs writes an article about Collegiate Academy students

     

    As spring draws to a close, students throughout the country are ready for some summer fun. The annual ritual of school closings for the summer begins and we enjoy taking vacations and spending time at the beach or enjoying the outdoors. The months will pass by quickly and soon enough a new school year will begin.

    This month I would like to feature Collegiate Academy, which completed a shoe drive fundraiser with Funds2Orgs. The school is an Early College High School located in Hurst, Texas. There are 220 students and they wanted to raise funds for their activities. We know these days many schools have trouble raising money. It’s something schools struggle with every day when they’re in session. And, schools that have many of their student body from low-income families fight harder than their affluent peers to obtain the same educational and enrichment opportunities.
     
    Forty percent of the students at Collegiate Academy come from low-income families. They needed a creative fundraiser to help them raise money for activities and scholarship aid. The students at Collegiate took the fundraising bull by the horns. They challenged their teachers and school clubs to each fill 10 bags of gently worn, used and new shoes.

Welcome to the Grapevine-Colleyville ISD Collegiate Academy at Tarrant County College at Northeast!

College is not a dream, it is a plan…

A Challenge-Based Curriculum

Collegiate Academy will use a challenge-based approach to learning, in which students and teachers collaborate to learn about compelling issues, propose solutions to real problems, and take action. In this setting, students must act in order to solve a problem instead of passively receiving information, equipping them with the problem-solving skills necessary to succeed at any college or in any career.
 
Strong Focus on Writing
 
College demands strong writing skills. Collegiate Academy students will complete writing assignments in every subject area. As a result, by the time students graduate, they will have mastered how to write for different purposes and audiences.

Strong Teacher Support

Collegiate Academy’s teachers and staff are committed to supporting each student from enrollment in high school to enrollment in a four year college. Through small class sizes, MAPS support and strong staff and parent relationships, our school offers a personalized environment where teachers and students become partners in learning, working together to conquer high school and college challenges and learn about four year colleges and career pathways.

Working with Community Leaders

Our school believes that students should have a deep understanding of their community -- the issues, resources, and leaders. Students will learn how to be active in their high school, TCC campus and neighborhood communities by participating in student government, after-school clubs, community internships and community service projects and graduate ready to be a part of the global community.

Promoting Parent Support

We view parents as highly valued members of our school communities and recognize that our students' success requires a partnership between school and family.  At Collegiate Academy parents are welcome to visit regularly, talk with school staff about their students' progress, and access assignments and grades online. Most importantly, parents are encouraged to be active members of our school communities through volunteer work, parent-teacher nights and special school events.

Promoting MAPS

All students at Collegiate Academy will attend MAPS class every year. MAPS focuses on writing, inquiry, collaboration, reading and strategies for success that include organization, time management, study skills, and support in college classes.
