High school students who successfully complete the Texas College Bridge program earn a TSIA (Texas Success Initiative Assessment) exemption that is accepted at nearly 100 partnering colleges and universities across the state. The exemption allows students to immediately enroll in credit-bearing courses without having to take a high-stakes placement test.
This comprehensive platform prepares students for college-level work. If we have an avenue to help our students reach their end goals faster, then why not try it. I highly encourage and recommend others to participate in Texas College Bridge.
Texas College Bridge (TCB) has been such a great addition to Rains High School as a supplement to help our college-bound students. For those who struggled to pass the TSIA, we used TCB as remediation. We also had students that used the TCB completion as a TSIA exemption. Rains High School's CCMR (College, Career, or Military Readiness) accountability jumped from 35% in 20-21 to 93% in 21-22! We will most definitely continue to use Texas College Bridge for our students.
