Collegiate High School

  Collegiate High School (CHS) is a program for high school students who seek an academically challenging, mature educational environment. CHS offers rigorous academic instruction, career guidance, academic counseling and work-based learning opportunities. By optimizing dual credit opportunities, students may complete high school graduation and associate degree requirements simultaneously.

Through specially designed transitions classes and activities, CHS students are allowed to enroll as full-time college students at College of the Mainland. Depending upon public high school requirements, some students may enroll as early as their freshman year of high school. Private school students may also enroll in CHS.

Extracurricular Activities

With the support of their local high school, students may remain enrolled in high school but complete their school day on the college campus. Students can continue their participation in extracurricular and UIL activities while enjoying the rigors of college academics. As full-time COM students, Collegiate High School students may also participate in COM campus activities, workshops and events.

What to Expect

Students and parents should strongly consider that students entering this program will be considered college students and expected to perform accordingly. High school procedures will not be followed in the college classes and college instructors follow their own grading and attendance procedures. Instructors do not send progress reports and other parental notifications home. Students must be mature enough to motivate themselves to be successful in an adult environment.
