It is with great excitement that I welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. 2016-17 was great and we expect even greater things this year. We look forward to our first graduating class this year. The class of 2018 has work hard and helped lay a strong foundation for future classes to build upon. We can’t wait to celebrate their accomplishments.
Our mission is to provide a first-class program that enables students to earn an Associate of Arts, Associates of Applied Science and/or workforce certification while completing the requirements for their high school diploma. Imagine, graduating from college before receiving your high school diploma.
Attending St. Philip’s Early College High School is not an easy task. The course load is demanding, extracurricular offerings are not offered at the same level as most comprehensive high schools, but the payoff of receiving a college degree (free of charge) along with the growth and success students will experience outweighs what may be given up. A successful future is within reach of all our students and this belief is a part of our culture.
We look forward to some great changes this year. We are adding extra college level faculty, a college bound advisor, and increasing our physical space to offer our students with additional support they may need. We have relocated all administrative and student support offices to one building, added two computer labs, a large multipurpose room, and a lounge for juniors and seniors to study and/or wait for their college classes. In addition, we have a new food service serving area, textbook room, teacher workroom and food pantry. We hope to work with our Parent Family Liaison (PFL) and PTO to provide a uniform closet. St. Philip’s College new Turbon Student Center will open August 9th. This center has a lot to offer our ECHS students; such as billiard tables, gaming consoles, student government offices, bookstore, post office, coffee shop, and a six-lane bowling alley.
Finally, we invite our parents to get involved. We have various opportunities for involvement. You may attend monthly PTO meetings, parent education classes, serve as a chaperone for college trips, share your career or serve as a mentor. Why not take a college class yourself? Dads, we need men who are willing to serve as role models for our young men. Call Mrs. Miller, PFL at 210-486-2406 for additional information. The opportunities are great and waiting for you. Let’s make this a great year…the choice is ours!
