How was your Early College experience?
Living the Early College experience was challenging, but also very rewarding. Completing an Associate’s while in high school did not only cut down two years of my Bachelor’s Degree, but it also came as a huge economic relief towards my post-secondary education.
What would you say to your PSJA Family?
I thank the whole PSJA family from our supportive board members and superintendent to our teachers and school administration for coming together and making Early College a possibility.
What would be your message for underclassmen?
I urge underclassmen to take on the challenge of becoming Early College students and not to give up along the way. Every all-nighter invested will be worth it when they receive their Associate’s Degree.
