Tarleton Today

Godley ISD extended an agreement to continue the Tarleton Today dual enrollment program at Godley High School during the March 24, 2024, school board meeting.

Trustees approved a memorandum of understanding for the 2024-25 school year to continue the program allowing Godley students to earn college credit through year-long classes and have the option to add it to a college transcript at the conclusion of the course.  

Free tuition is available for economically disadvantaged students, while others pay a reduced fee of $150 per 3-hour courses and $200 for 4-hour courses.  

Current course offerings include college algebra, animal science and agricultural economics.  In the 2024-25 school year, GHS students will also have opportunities for two college-level English courses.

Students participating in Tarleton Today take university courses over a traditional school year, receiving the high school portion of their instruction from their high school teacher and the university portion from a Tarleton professor. In addition to course content, Tarleton faculty empower students with university-ready skills and provide professional development for collaborating teachers.

“This is an affordable option for many Godley students to earn college credit while still in high school. Moreover, tuition is waived for our economically disadvantaged students, making this a game changer for many of those who will be first-generation college students,” said Dr. Rich Dear, Godley ISD Superintendent  “We look forward to a long relationship with Tarleton to bring high-quality courses to our high school.”

GHS also offers a number of dual credit courses through Hill College, McMurry University and Southwestern Adventist University.  These classes include art appreciation, economics, English, government, history, music appreciation, psychology, public speaking and statistics.  Career and technical education courses offering dual credit are automotive, cosmetology and emergency medical technician.
