Another distinction was bestowed upon Waxahachie Global High School for its college-readiness. GreatSchools.org awarded the 2020 College Success Award, which recognizes public high schools for preparing students for college and beyond.
College Success Award-winning high schools are identified based on school-level college preparation and postsecondary data, which are collected and shared by their states. This data indicates whether students are prepared for college, enrolled in college, and are ready for college-level coursework.
Global High is part of a cohort of only 2,158 public high schools (about 21 percent of total eligible schools across 29 states) that has won this award.
Global High is a STEM campus with an Early College High School designation. Global students have the opportunity to receive an associate degree free of charge from Navarro College or up to 60 hours toward a bachelor’s degree. Typically, 95 percent earn their associate degree before graduating from high school.
