Largest Dual Credit Numbers in BHS History  

Borger High School has hit an all-time high for enrollment in their dual-credit program.  For the Fall, 271 students are taking 713 classes.  This is 17% of Frank Phillips College’s entire enrollment.  Also, our students make up over 30% of FPC’s dual-credit enrollment with 271 of their 899 dual-credit students being from Borger High School.

In addition, our students are taking 2,091 college credit hours which is 33.4% of all dual-credit hours being taken at FPC.  FPC has a total of 6,254 total dual-credit hours being taken by their 19 cooperating schools.  BHS is at the top of these 19 schools with 271 dual-credit students.  The next closest high school has 92 students enrolled in their dual-credit program.   

In May, Borger High School will graduate our first ever Associate of Science Degrees in I & E (Instrumentation and Electrical).  Three students will graduate with this degree, with one being female.  We have 13 students on track to get their Associate of Science degree in May with three more set to finish their degree in the summer following their high school graduation.    If these students all complete their course work, BHS will have 19 graduates with associates degrees compared to the 15 students that graduated with their associates this past school year.

Borger High School has also seen tremendous growth in our certification programs.  We have record numbers in all certification classes with 15 cosmetology students, 44 welding students and a combined total of 35 I&E and Process Tech students.  94 total students are working on certificates that will allow them to go directly into the workforce upon graduation. 

None of this would be possible without our valuable partnerships with local industry and our local United Way, along with their partner agency Helping Hands.  Borger High School would also like to thank our superintendent and school board for their continued support of this program.  BISD pays for two college classes each semester (starting junior year) for any student wishing to enroll in dual-credit classes.  We are Borger High!
