What has the PSJA Early College Program done for you?
PSJA Early College has given me multiple opportunities in getting ahead with my college credits. When I entered high school my counselors and teachers were very helpful in guiding me towards the right path. I began taking Dual Credit classes the second semester of freshman year and it helped me get ahead of the game. I will now graduate with an associate's degree and be closer to my career goal. I want to thank everyone in the Early College Committee for giving me this opportunity on having two college years out of the way for the bright future I await.    

How do you feel about your experience at PSJA?
The experience I've had at PSJA will be one of the most memorable and incredible adventures I was so grateful to have. Not only did I gain so much knowledge, but I became a leader for others. By joining clubs and sports I learned that taking a role in a team is very important. People rely on you to lead and help the team grow and be successful in the goals you have put since the beginning. PSJA gave me friends that became family, teachers who became role models, and life long memories that will be treasured forever.  

What would you like to say to your PSJA Family?
To my PSJA family, I would like to tell you thank you. Thank you for one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Thank you for becoming the second family I never knew I could have. For pushing me to my most potential and for making me the individual I am today. I'm so grateful to have someone I can trust in and know that all of you want the best for me melts my heart with joy. Thank you for never giving up on me and making a home in your family.
