Brazosport College to host Open House for Catalyst program

Thu Feb 4, 2021

Brazosport College is seeking new students for its highly acclaimed Catalyst program, which provides qualified high school juniors the opportunity to start on a fast-tracked path toward high-wage industry jobs.

Developed through a partnership between Angleton ISD, Brazosport ISD, Columbia-Brazoria ISD, Sweeny ISD and Brazosport College, the Catalyst program allows qualified students to take a structured path toward the completion of an associate degree in Process Operations or Instrumentation Technology within one year of high school graduation or an applied baccalaureate degree in Industrial Management within three years of high school graduation.

On Thursday, February 11, Brazosport College will host an Open House in an effort to provide students and their families with more information about the Catalyst program.

The in-person event runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the BASF Center for Process Technology on the Brazosport College campus. Brazosport College safety protocols, including health screenings, face masks/coverings and social distancing, will be required while on campus. The required health screening form can be accessed at brazosport.edu/screening.

By attending the event, more can be learned about the Catalyst program, as well as the process technology and instrumentation fields. Those attending the Open House will also tour the Brazosport College facilities and interact with College faculty.

“This one-of-a-kind program is made possible by the partnerships we have with our local school districts and this Open House is the first step toward joining the program,” said Priscilla Sanchez, Brazosport College Dean of School and College Partnerships. “This is the perfect opportunity for interested students and their families to learn more about the Catalyst program and the many benefits it can provide.”

The Catalyst program maximizes instructional time and ensures course availability for all students. Catalyst students also train in state-of-the-art laboratory facilities at Brazosport College that mirror industry requirements.
