Welcome to College and High School Relations
From the moment students begin taking college courses at Austin Community College, a new door of opportunity opens. Choosing to start college while in high school is a major decision. This choice demonstrates that students are focusing on their future by taking the most advanced form of learning while in high school. College is not easy but once students start, our team is committed to helping students succeed in the college classroom and beyond.
Starting college offers students a level of independence and the chance to be in charge of their learning. With this independence comes maturity. College students are expected to learn and understand their rights and responsibilities (this includes high school students taking college courses). The Office of College and High School Relations (CHSR) provides a variety of support services to help students begin their transition to college while in high school.
This website also can help students navigate the college and access resources and services to support their success. What students learn inside and outside the classroom is essential to their growth and development as a college student. Most importantly, students will learn how to ask for help and self-advocate.
ACC and the College and High School Relations team are honored to be able to contribute to our students’ educational pursuits and we look forward to cheering on each student and watching them succeed!
Much success on this journey,
Interim Associate Vice Chancellor – College and High School Relations
