    What has the PSJA Early College Program done for you?
    PSJA Early College High School validated and pushed me to make my big dreams of going to college a reality. Through college courses, AP classes, and career programs, I am prepared for the next step in my life.

    How do you feel about your experience at PSJA?
    I feel gratitude for getting the chance to meet wonderful teachers that prepared me academically, for having an amazing financial officer that made it possible for me to have a full ride to the best school in Texas, and genuinely happy to have the opportunity to get interviewed or get recognized by a magazine because of the consistent support of PSJA.

    What would you say to your PSJA Family?
    I’ve never felt so loved and supported than the times I saw my former elementary teachers, my dear extracurricular instructors, or even South Texas College professors cheer me on through social media or words of encouragement on my successes. Thank you for being my family throughout the years. I'll always be PSJA proud.
