Freshman TAG student Cameron Jones was awarded a $500.00 scholarship from College Choice Today and Jostens High School Achievements. He won the scholarship based on his project idea of creating an affordable theme park based on history. College Choice Today helps students search, apply and look for financial aid to enable them not to just attend college but to be successful college graduates. Cameron will be coached by Lori Cochran of College Choice Today during his high school years. She will work with his counselor Ms. Imari Penn to make sure he is advised on the best college and career path.
Wagner hosted an all sport signing day for five of their outstanding student athletes and one student manager. Jordan Batson, Jemarre Yelton, Brian Kruse and Jonathan Kelly each signed on to play football in the fall for Sul Ross State University. Bryanna Espinoza signed with St. Andrews College to play soccer. William Caldwell signed with Jacksonville College to be a student assistant manager. Congratulations to all!
The Texas Education Agency has granted all three comprehensive high schools in Judson ISD an Early College Campus Designation. Judson ISD is the only district in the San Antonio metro area with all high school campuses to receive this designation. This means that students at Judson, Wagner and soon to open Mackey High School will have the opportunity to earn dual credit that will go toward a high school diploma as well as college credit. This model also affords students the pathway to earn an associate degree, similar to the program featured at Judson Early College Academy that partners with Northeast Lakeview College.
Judson High School
Judson High School is collaborating with Alamo Colleges, Wagner with Texas A&M-San Antonio, and Mackey with Wayland Baptist University, the only high school in the state partnering with a private institution.
Wagner High School
For students choosing the early college pathway at Judson, Wagner or Mackey, their college attendance will be a hybrid of virtual class connections from their high school campus as well as a physical presence on the college campus.
