SJHS Senior Completes Associate of Arts Degree
Saint Jo ISD is pleased to recognize the dual degree accomplishment of senior student Jace Johnson. Jace recently earned his Associate of Arts degree from North Central Texas College (NCTC), as well as his high school diploma from Saint Jo ISD.
The dual credit partnership between Saint Jo ISD and NCTC began 14 years ago with a limited number of classes being offered and has grown exponentially to what it is today. Jace Johnson has accomplished what Saint Jo ISD and NCTC outlined as a vision for the future of dual credit by earning an Associate’s degree while attending high school. Jace plans to attend Oklahoma State University and pursue a degree in Architecture.
“Our school district cannot be more thankful for the partnership with NCTC, as well as the tremendous financial support of our Saint Jo ISD Education Foundation,” stated SJISD Superintendent Curtis Eldridge. The Saint Jo ISD Education Foundation has assisted in the dual credit funding of core courses required of a high school diploma. The tuition assistance provided by the Foundation is a result of the gracious donations of many local, regional, and state contributors. Jace Johnson joins a prestigious list of recent years’ graduates that have attained a Saint Jo ISD Diploma and a NCTC Associate’s Degree, concurrently.
