Collegiate Academy at TCC Northeast
September 18, 2022
This year’s CA Open House was a tremendous success! Our students were excited to show off their clubs, organizations and UIL teams. We appreciate all of our TCC NE partners who attended to share information and mingle with the Phoenix Family. We celebrated our TEA Rating and were encouraged to be part of the Phoenix Family Booster Club. If you haven’t joined please scroll down to the Booster club entry and join TODAY! We need you. The end of the first nine weeks is October 14. We will be hosting Friday school on September 30 for all students to get caught up or need additional support! Our goal this year is Every Student, Every Day to Win the Day!
As the weather gives us a hint of fall, I can’t wait for the HOCO Dance on October 7 and the Fall Festival on November 4. I love it when the Phoenix Family comes together!
PSAT Testing | Pre-administration
Collegiate Academy will be administering the PSAT on Wednesday, October 12th, 2022 for all students in grades 9-12, free of charge. Next week, CA students will be conducting pre-administration during their Pathways class. Holding a pre-administration in advance of test day allows students to fill out their identifying information on the answer sheets early to reduce extra test day activities.
Car Rider Pick-up Update
Beginning on Monday, September 19th, students who are car riders will be released through the east doors of our building for after school pickup only. The east doors exit to the parking lot in the back of the Collegiate Academy building. To pick up your student, you will turn left at the light on Tarrant County College road. After you enter the parking lot, you will turn right and circle around to the east entrance, and finally exit the parking lot. We will also have teachers and staff helping to direct traffic. Please see the map below:
Clubs and Tutorials
This week, our students began 3rd Period Clubs and Tutorials. We are so fortunate to have tutorials built into the school day. We have a lot going on during 3rd period, so please remind your students to make the most of this valuable time we have each day!

If a student must be absent from school a parent should call the school attendance office each day of a student’s absence to report the student’s name and reason for the absence (personal or illness).

Covid 19 and Meningitis Vaccine
If a student tests positive for COVID, please complete this form to report their case to the District. An email will be generated back to the family stating when their 5 day isolation period is complete, and may return.
TCC requires a Bacterial Meningitis Vaccine every 5 years for anyone under the age of 22. This vaccine booster can not be given until the student turns 16. Please send me the updated record once received. I will update Skyward and send a copy to TCC so there is not a hold if the Meningitis vaccine is due when they register for classes.
