Phillips 66, Chevron Phillips Launch Texas Petrochemical Academy

Phillips 66, Chevron Phillips Chemical and the Sweeny Independent School District are pleased to announce their support in the creation of a petrochemical academy in Sweeny, TX. This occupational education program will allow students the opportunity to take dual credit college courses while attending high school.

“Being able to offer dual credit courses in process technology, instrumentation, millwright, pipefitting and welding will help students gain certifications and advancement to an associate degree, which in turn will benefit the students and industry,” says Randy Miksch, Sweeney superintendent.

Enacted by the Texas Legislature during the 83rd session, House Bill 5 made substantial changes to the state's curriculum and graduation requirements, assessment program and accountability system. A key component of the legislation allows college preparatory courses to be offered for dual credit, helping to ensure students get an early start on both college and career.
