Timpson Collegiate Center News
The Timpson ISD Collegiate Center offers Timpson ISD students the opportunity to receive an associates two year college degree, certifications and licenses. On Monday October 24 the TISD counseling staff met with 33 eighth and ninth grade students and their parents to develop a plan that puts students on the path to take dual credit classes that would lead to certification or licenses. Currently 33 students are taking dual credit classes that will give them both high school and college credit that can lead to a two year associates college degree.
The classes students are currently taking include speech, English, humanities, psychology, history, business, biology, arts, government, math and music. One student is taking welding and five are working toward a Certified Nurse’s Assistant certificate. If your child is in the 8th or 9th grade and you did not get to attend the meeting on October 24th you may schedule a meeting time by calling Stephanie Behrens at 936/254-2463 Ext. 4117.
