This is second consecutive year Colorado River Collegiate Academy wins award

Colorado River Collegiate Academy, the early college high school at the Bastrop school district, received a bronze medal in the U.S. News & World Report’s annual ranking of best high schools.

This is the second consecutive year the school earns that designation.

“We are incredibly proud of the students and staff at CRCA for being recognized once again as a top-ranked school,” Superintendent Barry Edwards said. “The dream that started years ago to open an early college high school has come to fruition with our first graduating class, and to have the school recognized by U.S. News for its academic achievement and commitment to excellence is simply outstanding.”

The school’s principal, Martin Conrardy, said the teachers and staff at Colorado River Collegiate Academy are “the most dedicated, student-centered faculty I have ever been associated with.”

“Every day and each new semester brings different challenges, and our faculty has risen to the task every time, always staying focused on the achievement of our students.”

There were 601 Texas schools included in the 2018 national rankings for best high schools, including 73 that earned gold, 155 that earned silver and 373 that earned bronze.
