About Us

The Early College High School is an exciting opportunity for students beginning ninth grade to participate in a combined high school and college experience with the goal of earning a high school diploma and college associate degree at the same time.

All courses are taught on the LCCC campus tuition free. Bus transportation is included. Curriculum is challenging, support services plentiful and family involvement encouraged as a necessity. By taking advantage of the college's resources, laboratories, and performing arts center, faculties from both education environments, and by using technology and non-traditional instructional strategies students will be more engaged in the learning process.

The Mission:
The Early College High School will genuinely engage first-generation college-bound students to complete a rigorous curriculum, supported by technology, that is clearly aligned to student interest and state standards. Flexible coursework will be provided in a challenging and supportive environment with an applied learning focus that provides students a structure that enables them to earn their high school diploma and to overlap those efforts with those needed to earn an associate degree, leading to a bachelor degree and employment.

Opportunities To Serve

Long-Term Opportunity:

The Early College High School is seeking volunteers to tutor/mentor high school students. Subject topics may vary. This is very rewarding experience for volunteers; one previous volunteer changed her major to education because of her experience with our students. Due to the high school setting, all volunteers must have a background check completed. For more information, please contact Brenda Owens.
