CURRENT PLANS *Distinguished Achievement Program – 26 Credits *Recommended Program – 26 Credits Minimum Program – 22 Credits PROPOSED CHANGES TO THESE PLANS * Foundational High School Program
College Readiness: Many colleges and universities minimally require the RHSP (Foundational) for admission. In addition, students ranked in the top 10% of their graduating class from an accredited Texas public high school are eligible for automatic admission to most Texas public universities if they have completed the RHSP or the DAP. (Exceptions – UT Austin requires for 2014 Top 7%) Recognition: The RHSP seal will be affixed to the Academic Achievement Record (transcript). Test Results: Research suggests that students who take the additional English, math, social studies, and science courses make higher scores on the SAT or ACT college entrance exams. The RHSP requires four credits in each of these core courses. (Foundational Plan would continue some of these requirements.)
