SAC Honors Academy offers special college in core areas - including
English, History, Government, Math and Science - that every student will
need for a bachelor's degree in Texas. Honors courses promote study
habits and critical thinking skills that are essential for excellent
performance at any college or university. Honors students take
designated honors courses together and are taught by instructors who
work collaboratively to create an excellent learning environment.
The students graduate with courses that transfer to four-year
colleges and universities nationwide. They work one-on-one with
dedicated faculty towards academic, transfer and career goals. They
receive a first-rate college experience during their first two years at a
fraction of the cost of a four-year college or university.
The Honors Academy provides the following extra services: access to a
dedicated faculty advisor to help with course registration and
financial aid; early registration to secure the right classes at the
most convenient times; access to transfer and scholarship seminars plus
support to help students take advantage of these opportunities; access
to the Honors Academy Center where students can meet with faculty
advisors and peer mentors, receive tutoring and participate in study
The Academy is open to high school graduates who have at least a 3.25
GPA and who scored at college level in reading and writing on either
the Accuplacer, THEA, ACT, or SAT college entrance exams.
Current SAC students with less than 20 hours college level course
work completed and who have at least a 3.25 GPA and are eligible to take
college level reading and writing courses are also encouraged to apply.
