For PSJA Early College Graduate Damaris Blanco, earning an associate degree before earning her high school diploma was a life-changing milestone she was thrilled to accomplish at an early age.  

“My education is a blessing,” said Blanco. “I would like to thank God, my family, my amazing teachers, counselors, and administrators at PSJA Early College High School, and of course my PSJA Family for providing me with the necessary resources, tools, and instruction to lead me on a path of success as I continue with my post-secondary education.”   

Through partnerships with South Texas College and other higher education leaders, more than 3,500 PSJA ISD high school students are enrolled in college courses each semester through the district’s nationally recognized Early College Program.
