Early College High School

Early College High Schools (ECHS) are established through partnerships between school districts and colleges that are innovatively designed to blend high school and college education using a dual credit framework. The schools are designed for high school students to simultaneously earn a high school diploma and an associate degree (or up to two years of credit toward a bachelor's degree).

We launched our first ECHS partnerships in 2014. Beginning their freshmen year, ECHS students begin working toward their high school diplomas while earning up to 60 semester credit hours toward an associate degree—all free-of-cost to students enrolled in the program.
