Early College

An Early College is a small, autonomous high school associated with Southwestern Community College. Early College provides high school students, who enroll in the 9th grade, the opportunity to earn both their high school diploma and an associate’s degree (or two years of college credit) within their five years of enrollment in Early College. The Early College provides a safe, caring school where each child is well-known, intellectually challenged, and encouraged by high school and college faculty and staff. It is a unique high school environment accepting students of diverse ability levels through an application process conducted each spring. This link will take you to the early college website.
