Early College HS Magnet
Beginning fall of 2020
The ECHS program embeds social/emotional supportive measures throughout the program to encourage young learners who have the potential to do advanced work.
The goal of this program is to support and provide educational opportunities for traditionally underrepresented students in higher education including at-risk, low income, English language learners and first-generation students. Interested students should possess a high level of commitment, academic tenacity and show the potential to do college-level work while in high school.
The program is open to all incoming 9th-grade students and specifically encourages participation by diverse student groups who are typically underrepresented in college courses.
