The Class of 2023, comprised of 111 students, was inducted into IMPACT Early College High School Aug. 8, at the Lee College Performing Arts Center. Through Goose Creek CISD’s partnership with Lee College, students who apply for and are accepted to IMPACT ECHS have the opportunity to earn an associate degree or at least some college hours while earning high school diploma.
At IMPACT ECHS, the focus is on academics, and while the coursework is challenging, students receive strong support from the faculty and staff at both IMPACT and Lee College. Spartans give back to the community through service projects such as tutorials, Habitat for Humanity and the Pilot Club of Baytown Alzheimer’s Walk. They also enjoy clubs, organizations and dances.
