Brazosport College Dual Credit Counselor Darla Fagan outlines the Catalyst program to an interested high school student during a recent Open House event on the BC campus.

Brazosport College recently hosted an Open House event in an effort to provide high school students more information about its highly acclaimed Catalyst program.

Students attending the event, which was held at the BASF Center for Process Technology and the Byron & Sandra Sadler Health Professions/Science Complex, were able to have their questions answered about the Catalyst program, as well as the Process Technology and Instrumentation programs at Brazosport College. Students also had opportunities to tour the facilities and interact with College faculty.

Developed through a partnership between Angleton ISD, Brazosport ISD, Columbia-Brazoria ISD, Sweeny ISD and Brazosport College, the Catalyst program allows qualified high school students, beginning their junior year, to take a structured path toward the completion of an associate degree in Process Operations or Instrumentation Technology within one year of high school graduation or an applied baccalaureate degree in Industrial Management within three years of high school graduation.

The Catalyst program maximizes instructional time and ensures course availability for all students. Catalyst students also train in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities at Brazosport College that mirror industry requirements.
