FUTURES Academies

Students at eight HISD campuses have the opportunities to earn an associate’s degree and receive career training in high‐demand technical fields through the FUTURES Academy program. Working in partnership with the Houston Community College System, HISD opened six new academies in the 2012‐2013 school year. In addition, HISD has partnered with The University of Texas MD Anderson School of Health Professions to offer dual credit courses at one of the two new programs during the 2014‐2015 school year.

FUTURES Academies provide students a clear reason to earn college‐ready scores as early as 9th grade to be able to start college while in high school. The degree and stackable industry credentials are aimed at providing students options after high school, to begin rewarding careers in high‐growth, high‐wage fields or to transfer earned college credits and continue their education at institutions of higher education.
