Students are thoroughly prepared to meet the rigorous demands of the universities to which they have gained admission.
What leads to Vanguard students’ success?
A high percentage of our faculty have advanced degrees in their field. They are passionate about teaching and eager to share their extensive knowledge of their subject with their pupils.
Small teacher to student ratios allows for a high degree of individual attention from the teacher and meaningful small group engagement.
Vanguard students are not beholden to the ever-changing required state testing, and can instead focus on developing higher level critical thinking skills, which they easily utilize when placed in a test environment.
All Vanguard students enrolled in an AP course must take that course’s corresponding exam at the end of the school year.
80% of Vanguard AP students scored a 3 or higher on their AP tests compared to the Texas state average of 49.8%. That’s a 30 percentage point advantage!
