CRE Academy

CARE Academy

Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District and Lone Star College-CyFair have a unique partnership benefiting high school seniors by offering college prep classes in English and Math. This partnership program is called the College Awareness Readiness and Education (CARE) Academy. English IV on-level and Advanced Algebra classes taught in CyFair ISD were aligned by both ISD and college faculty with college readiness standards to help students achieve their Best Start in college. Students in the CARE Academy may be eligible to enroll directly into Freshman college-level Math and/or English courses (Math 1314, MATH 1324, ENGL 1301) without having to take a college placement test if the following conditions have been met:

  • Earn 75% or higher in Advanced Algebra and/or English IV on-level
  • Complete an LSC-CyFair application
  • Provide an official high school transcript to Lone Star College
  • Enroll in college credit Math or English after graduation*

Our goal is to make the process easier for students to transition into college as they continue on the path toward their educational and career aspirations! Feel free to contact your College and Career Specialist at the high school with any questions. We thank you for choosing LSC-CyFair!

*Students must enroll in the appropriate course within 24 months of their graduation date.
