About the Life Sciences Innovative Academy (CTE Early College High School)


    The Innovative Academies open doors to more options and opportunities for our students after high school!

    These academies encompass two main programs: The Life Sciences Innovative Academy, housed at Hastings Ninth Grade Center and Hastings High School, and the Alief International Academy, housed at Elsik Ninth Grade Center and Elsik High School. 

    The Life Sciences Innovative Academy is a dual credit college program which partners with the Houston Community College and consists of two separate pathways - Pharmacy Technician and Construction Technology. Both pathways offer students the opportunity to earn real-world workplace certifications and transferable college credit. More information for these pathways can be located on their respective pages.
