Dual Credit Courses
Giving students a chance to excel
For students looking to earn both high school credit and college credit for classes, we offer dual credit courses.
We believe in the talents of our students and give qualified students the chance to earn the most from their St. Pius X education. Our dual credit courses prepare students for the rigors of college life that await them.
We work with Houston Community College (HCC) so that students who demonstrate college readiness through the PSAT, SAT, ACT or TSI test may take college level courses at St. Pius X and earn college credits in addition to high school credits.
