The Socorro Independent School District Board of Trustees and SISD Superintendent Dr. José Espinoza approved the proposal to create another early college program for the 2017-2018 school year at the October 2016 board meeting.

Trailblazers Early College, the district’s fourth early college program, will allow students the opportunity to earn an associate of arts degree or 60 college credit hours in a comprehensive high school setting. The school, which will operate at Americas High School, will welcome 125 students in its first cohort. Eighth-graders in the Americas feeder area may apply to the program.

“As the proud principal of Americas High School, I’m elated that our school was selected as the next designated early college for SISD,” said Principal Patricia Cuevas. “It illustrates the foundation of our district, which is one of endless opportunities.”
