Class of 2025 Dual Credit Cohort

We are hoping to have at least 25 students sign up for the 2025 Dual Credit Cohort (they must be willing to take all 5 classes being offered: Psychology, Sociology, Government, Economics, & Environmental Science by the time they graduate) and at least 15 students to sign up for the OnRamps English III course. 

The interest form is due by March 8th. We are asking that students complete the free Dallas College application (if they opt for the Dual Credit courses) by March 10th

The major differences between Dual Credit and OnRamps:

OnRamps does not require the student to take the TSI.

Both options award High School AND College Credit; however, with OnRamps, students have the option of whether or not they want to accept the college credit and have it on their college transcript. 

If they did not put these classes on their current course selections, it is fine! We will meet with the interested students and make adjustments accordingly.

Brick Campaign

Help support Woodrow by purchasing a commemorative brick! 

The Class of 2003 installed the first commemorative bricks and benches in our horseshoe to create a Woodrow “Walk of Pride” seating area. You can purchase a brick for a student, an alumnus, your favorite teacher, or your class. 

Orders are taken during the school year through the end of May. Installation will happen over the summer break.

Pricing: Current students can purchase a brick for $45. Once a student has graduated the price of the bricks will increase to $90. 

Keep in mind that this is a Fundraiser and there is a limited amount of space in our courtyard.

Purchase a Brick

Spirit Shop

Spirit Shop will be selling all polos for $10. Please shop in person because there are no returns. We will discontinue polo sales at the end of this school year.

Thursday, March 23:  7:30 to 9:00 a.m.
