Bauxite Public Schools offers a plethora of in-person and virtual college courses to students in grades 9-12. These students have the opportunity to gain college credit for little to no cost of their own thanks to a partnership with Arkansas Tech University. 

This year, Bauxite students (and parents) have saved over $113,468 in tuition costs by taking these courses on the Bauxite campus and with Bauxite teachers who have obtained Master's degrees in the subject areas. 

Students who start as 9th graders can earn almost enough college credits to obtain an Associate's Degree from Arkansas Tech at the same time they are receiving their high school diploma. Bauxite is almost able to offer every single course to make this a possibility and will keep working towards this goal to give as many opportunities to our students as possible.

Congratulations to the students, parents, and teachers who worked so hard to make this a reality.
