What is an Early College High School?

Early College High School

  • Provide dual credit at no cost to students
  • Offer rigorous instruction and accelerated courses
  • Provide academic and social support services to help students succeed
  • Increase college readiness
  • Reduce barriers to college access

For more information on Early College High Schools, view the Texas Education Agency's website.
