Welcome to Advanced Academics
Socorro ISD has focused on ensuring that students are prepared for a changing and increasingly complex future by providing all students the opportunity to take challenging Pre-Advanced Placement and Advanced Placement courses starting in middle school. As College and Career Readiness is a priority in all grade levels, students are encouraged to continue enrolling in Pre-Advanced Placement, Advanced Placement and Dual Credit Courses. As early as 8th grade, students begin exploring the different Career Endorsements and Academic Academies offered at the high schools. Students are continuously encouraged to participate in UIL activities.
Part of our commitment to better prepare students for College Readiness is to provide students with the opportunity to take the PSAT NMSQT and PSAT 10. SISD works collaboratively with CollegeBoard to schedule an SAT school day exam.
SISD population is representative of a multicultural student body. The AVID curriculum provides the necessary tools for student success. Our goal is to increase the percent of students graduating with a Performance Acknowledgement recognition and to pursue post-secondary education.
Our mission is to support and encourage 21st Century Learning Skills and Environments that provide all students in the Socorro Independent School District an opportunity to graduate college and career ready.
