SAISD Partners with Angelo State University to Offer Dual-Credit Scholars partnership



San Angelo ISD and Angelo State University are excited to announce an enhanced

Presidential Dual Credit Scholars partnership which will provide additional,

in-person dual credit core course offerings to our students at Lake View High School

taught by ASU professors and Lake View High School credentialed teachers. The

enhanced dual credit opportunities enable students to earn both college credit and

high school credit simultaneously, and will be available to freshmen through senior

students at no cost to the student (up to 3 courses per semester). These new dual

credit courses will provide LVHS students with the opportunity to earn credit hours

in core subjects which means these students could graduate from Angelo State

University with a bachelor's degree in less than 4 years with little to no debt.

“This partnership with Angelo State University will open new doors for our Lake

View High School students, paving their way to college as one more opportunity to

provide future-readiness to our students,”said Dr. Candi Callas, SAISD Director of

Secondary Curriculum and Instruction. “High school students who may not have

considered attending higher education may now look at this as a pathway to

earning a college degree. Having college professors teach our students alongside

our teachers will be a monumental experience for LVHS Chiefs!”

We will begin offering these dual credit options for our Lake View students starting

in the fall of 2021. Students will have the opportunity to indicate interest in the

courses on campus starting tomorrow, Tuesday, May 11th.

Lake View students enrolled in these dual credit courses will spend one day each

9-weeks at the ASU campus experiencing what college life is like. Students will be

bussed from LVHS to ASU to participate in various activities to experience first-hand

what it is like to be a part of the Ram Fam, such as access to learning resources

through ASU including Blackboard and tutoring services. An ASU graduate assistant

is also available on Lake View’s campus to discuss college readiness and

opportunities for our students’ college futures.

“Enhancing the Presidential Scholars Dual Credit Program at LVHS is Angelo State's

commitment to the students and parents of making the dream of earning a

bachelor's degree a reality in four years or less with the lowest amount of debt,"

said Dr. Javier Flores, ASU Vice President for Student Affairs and Enrollment

Management.
