About Global High School

 
Founded in 2007, Waxahachie Global High School began as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) campus. In 2009 Global High School added the ECHS (Early College High School) designation.
 
Our students are required to take four years of core classes, English, Math, Science, and Social Studies. They also take a minimum of two years of Technology and Engineering. In the fall of 2018, we will be located at a new campus where we expect to expand our Engineering Pathways to also include both Business and Health Science Pathways.
 
Having the ECHS designation allows our student to receive an Associates Degree from Navarro College or up to 60 hours toward a Bachelor's Degree as they earn their high school credits. Global students begin taking dual credit courses their freshman year, and ninety-five percent typically earn their Associates degree before graduating from high school. Another great aspect of having the ECHS designation is that our students do not have to purchase their books, pay tuition, or encounter fees to attend the college while they are students at Global. We partner with two colleges; our local Navarro College campus and the University of Texas at Tyler which also serves as our state T-STEM Center.
 
Global High School (part of WISD) is an open enrollment campus serving students from Waxahachie and our surrounding districts. We are a smaller campus with approximately four hundred students. We have a very rigorous curriculum offering advanced and dual credit courses. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, national origin (ancestry), disability, academic, or at risk status. Any student completing the eligibility requirements to attend the 9th grade may apply.
