2021-2023 Early College High School Planning and Implementation Grant

The purpose of the Early College High Schools (ECHS) model is to allow students least likely to attend college an opportunity to receive both a high school diploma and either an associate degree or at least 60 credit hours toward a baccalaureate degree. The ECHS provides dual credit at no cost to historically underserved students, targeting those who are at-risk and/or economically disadvantaged. The ECHS offers rigorous instruction and accelerated courses and provides academic and social support services to help students succeed in college level coursework. The ECHS provides students with highly personalized attention which promotes improvement in college readiness.
