Here are more details on the Gold Seal Programs at Paschal.
Careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics are in high demand across the country, and Paschal is aware of the changing demand. Here students learn the concepts of engineering and technology and work their way to engineering design principles. The program culminates with experience in engineering structures and the presentation of those structures. Students have the opportunity to obtain an industry certification in SolidWorks, an engineering design program.
GRAPHIC DESIGN FOR WEB & PRINT PUBLICATION
Graphic Design for Web and Print Publication provides opportunities for students to learn Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash, InDesign and Dreamweaver, all of which are industry standards in the areas of web design, print publications and marketing. Creativity is stressed as students study basic design principles and use the skills they acquire to achieve industry certifications and preparation for college.
The Scholars Program addresses the desire of high-achieving students to garner college credit, but to not feel boxed in by a particular college or career pathway. Paschal has a long and outstanding reputation as being the premier college readiness school in Fort Worth ISD, sending numerous students to prestigious colleges all over the country with up to 60 hours of college credit earned through success on AP exams. Scholars Program students graduate Paschal High School with the Distinguished Achievement Diploma.
