What is College View High School?

What is College View High School

College View High School has been in existence for only a short period of time with our brand new building being erected in 2016. For the past 2 years, there has been a transition process from the previous Timber Academy model (purely credit recovery via online modules) to the current model of College View (live direct instruction combined with a variety of "choices" in a small, family atmosphere).

So how is our model different than a traditional setting? Our intent is to serve students who have the desire and academic focus to accelerate their learning, yet not necessarily want a full extracurricular menu. College View High School strives to give our students a focused educational experience within a smaller setting compared to the much larger high schools in the community. This smaller setting naturally lends itself to our family atmosphere known as The Wolfpack. Our students have more autonomy as we intentionally try to create a more "college like" environment. We expect our College View students to be highly motivated to put forth persistent effort required both during and outside the school day to complete their high school transcript with endorsements while having the opportunity to earn significant college credit (up to 48 hours) during the school day via Dual Credit classes through Blinn College, and/or become trade/industry licensed through our TEEX Fire School Academy, and/or possibly graduate early. College View also allows students the opportunity to explore their creative side with an innovative art program which allows a student to conceive an idea and bring it to life, whether it be graphic design, painting, sculpture, photography, animation, and more.

Furthermore, College View offers opportunities for students to be involved in a variety of clubs that occur throughout the entire year.

The TEEX Fire School Academy started in the 2018-2019 school year. Students may begin this program in their freshman year. At the end of their senior year, they will be completed with all of their classwork and will be eligible to enroll in the 21 day boot camp at Brayton Fire Training Field. Students completing the boot camp would then take their certification test through the Texas Commisson on Fire Protection or the ProBoard (for national certification). They would also have training as an Emergency Medical Responder.

TEEX

All students will have opportunities to learn in a variety of ways such as traditional direct instruction classrooms, real-world applications, web-based instruction, community service involvement, and dual credit with Blinn College.
