The students then received their official University of Texas at Austin shirts. The shirts will be able to be worn as part of their school uniform.

OnRamps provides distance education courses via a dual enrollment model to more than 38,000 students across Texas — more than half of whom would be first in their families to earn a bachelor’s degree.

Students in this program are from the Oak Cliff and Waxahachie campuses. 

The program was designed by UT Austin faculty, with Faith Family Academy’s 13 courses spanning STEM, Arts, and Humanities. The college credit portion is transferable to any Texas public higher education institution.
