At I.M. Terrell Academy, Dr. White serves apprentices in all major pathways known as the Gold Seal Programs of Choice. I.M. Terrell Academy is a College Preparatory Academy and has over eight different program pathways: Art, Choir, Dance, Instrumental Music (Band and Orchestra), Piano, and Theatre Arts on the Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) side, and offers STEM (also known as P-TECH, that encompasses Robotics, Engineering and Computer Science) . Future apprentices must apply through the GSPOC online application through FWISD to be considered for admission to any of the pathways at I. M. Terrell Academy.
Within STEM (P-TECH), an apprentice will have the opportunity to take Engineering Technology Courses focused on Robotics Automation or courses in the PLTW Computer Science pathway. Apprentices will also be afforded the opportunity to interview for internships with our industry partners, Texas Instruments, Lockheed Martin and Bell Helicopter. The P-TECH program has a Dual Credit component where apprentices will have the opportunity to earn college credits that could ultimately lead to them earning an Associates Degree in Applied Sciences by the time they graduate High School.
Within the Visual and Performing Arts (VPA) Academy, an apprentice may choose one of the seven pathways: Art, Band, Choir, Dance, Orchestra, Piano, or Theatre, as their major. Please note - those who apply to one of the VPA Programs must also audition.
All classes except for Health, PE, and first year Foreign Language are graded on the 4.5 weighted scale or above. Every apprentice will participate in the Humanities Academy for their ELA and Social Studies class credits. Apprentices will also have the opportunity to gain college credit through AP course, OnRamps course and Dual Credit courses.
