Successful passing of the reading and writing sections of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment is required to begin college courses in the Early College High School Program (ECHS).
Some middle schools offer TSI testing on their campuses. If a student cannot test on their campus, they can test at Akins on Saturday mornings. Please contact Mr. Mark Martinez, Akins TSI Testing Coordinator, to sign up for Saturday testing. Mr. Martinez can be reached at 512-841-9979 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Students can join the ECHS program even if they have not passed the TSI reading and writing sections. We will continue to support the student by providing TSI tutorials during the Summer Bridge program and in the fall semester in a TSI preparation course at Akins.
