Dallas County Promise scholarship

Garland High School is now a Dallas County Promise scholarship high school.  All seniors have the opportunity to earn a full-tuition scholarship to any Dallas County Community College for three years or the completion of an associate degree (whichever comes first). Seniors do not need to meet any income or GPA requirements.

Seniors who participate in the Dallas County Promise program will also be matched with a success coach who will serve as a mentor beginning at the end of the senior year through college completion.  See more information.
