Kerr students are given the freedom and responsibility to take control of their own learning. Our academic structure is learning-center based focusing on independent study within an accelerated block schedule. This non-traditional approach has resulted in student success during high school and far beyond. 75 of Kerr AP students qualified as AP Scholars in 2018. 73% of the class of 2019 met both Reading and Math college readiness benchmarks as juniors. In 2018, 63% of seniors earned a 3 or higher on an AP exam. The senior class regularly graduates with more than 1,000 hours of college credit each year. The biggest indicator of our success, college retention rate. 86% of Kerr students enroll in a post-secondary institution immediately after high school. 96% enroll again the following year resulting in a college retention rate 23% higher than the national average. Students leave Kerr with the skills for college and career success. Kerr has received the Blue Ribbon School designation by the US Department of Education in 2010 & 2016 as one of the best schools in the nation. Other awards include: Newsweek America’s Top Schools, Texas Honor Roll School, Best Practice Reward School.
