Dual Credit Courses


TLCA High School is in partnership with institutes of higher education, affording our Juniors and Senior students the opportunity to enroll in dual credit classes.  There are certain prerequisites which need to be met in order to qualify as a dual credit student.  These prerequisites include high school course completions and test scores.  Students are required to achieve a certain score on the Algebra I and English II End of Course assessments.  If the prerequisite is not met through the End of Course assessments, students are required to take the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) and meet a certain score. 


  • Minimum Passing Standards for TSI test:
  • Math – 350
  • Reading – 351
  • Writing – Essay score 5; or Essay score 4 AND Multiple Choice 363
