Travis students part of SAC graduation

 


 At 15, Savannah Villanueva may be the youngest person to graduate from San Antonio College.  Not far behind is Laura Caballero, 17, her classmate at Travis Early College High School.  The duo is among 41 students who will graduate from SAC on May 11 having earned enough college credit in the last four years to receive an associate degree.   

This is the second graduating class for Travis, which is part of SAISD. Travis opened in 2008 and has been rated Exemplary every year by the Texas Education Agency.  Students entering 9th grade can take college-level classes and earn up to two years of college credit. For the 62 students  graduating from Travis, there is a total of $4.5 million in college scholarships being offered.    

Savannah’s family lives in the Judson school district so her father drops her off at Travis early every morning.  The reason she will be graduating so young is because she skipped over both sixth and eighth grades. Savannah was 12 when she started at Travis the second semester of her freshman year but says she felt very welcome.  She is the first one in her family to attend college.

“The counselor came to my middle school,” says Laura. “I thought it would be a good idea to do both high school and college.”  Since starting Travis, Laura’s family, including two younger siblings moved. She now resides with her grandmother during the school week and rides to school with her cousin who is also attending Travis.

Asked to offer up advice for potential Travis students, Laura urges, “keeping track of your work.”  While Savannah stresses the need to “understand the commitment to your work.” 

Both girls said physics was their favorite class  at SAC  and both hope to pursue doctorates. Savannah wants to be a pediatric oncologist and Laura aims to be a child psychologist.  Each has received scholarships to continue their education.  

Savannah plans to attend Schreiner University (Kerrville) in the fall. She says one of the best things about Travis is the support she has received. “Even when you have a rough day, you always have someone pushing you.”

Laura will attend the University of the Incarnate Word. “What I really like about Travis is that there are not a lot of kids. We really get to know our teachers and they get to know us,” she says.

A down side to Travis is no athletics or extracurricular activities typical of a high school.  Savannah wanted to run track and play volleyball, while Laura envisioned playing clarinet in the marching band.  Travis students will hold a prom on May 17 and the school’s graduation ceremony on June 14 at Jefferson High School.  

The application deadline for Travis Early College High School is May 31, 2013.  For more information, visit:  www.saisd.net/schools/travisearlycollege022/
