BRYAN -- Students of the Bryan Collegiate High School won't have to worry about the doors closing on them anytime soon.

The Bryan Independent School District voted to renew the program's charter for another school year. The renewal comes not long after the school graduated its first official class.

Bryan ISD superintendent, Dr. Thomas Wallis, says the program aims to reach out to students who may not have thought about going to college.

"The purpose of this is to reach those at risk students. The purpose of this is to reach that first generational college student and give those students the opportunity to receive up to at least 60 college credit hours by the time they graduate high school," said Wallis.

The program is a partnership between BISD, Texas A&M and Blinn College.

This past school year, they graduated 64 seniors. 58 of which, will go onto college.

Next school year 124 ninth graders have been accepted. The school plans to cap its incoming class at 125 students.
