The Arkansas High School Collegiate Academy is a partnership between the Texarkana Arkansas School District (TASD) and the University of Arkansas Hope-Texarkana. The goal of the academy is to provide students with a two or three-year curriculum that allows them the opportunity to complete a high school diploma and an associate degree simultaneously. The academy is a public school, it is free of charge and is located on the University of Arkansas Texarkana campus. Students in the Arkansas High School Collegiate Academy are eligible for the Arkansas Transfer Achievement Scholarship. This is a program that reduces the tuition rate for UA Hope-Texarkana graduates who transfer to the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. With this scholarship, graduates with Associate of Arts or Science degrees will pay the UAHT tuition rate instead of the Fayetteville campus’s full rate, resulting in significant savings on their path to gaining a bachelor’s degree.
