Early College High School

All students will graduate prepared and ready for college or career.

Early College High School at Midland College

  • Early College High School focuses on a foundation of leadership tied to six pillars: honesty, kindness, responsibility, integrity, desire and respect. This foundation leads students to be successful and focused on a rigorous academic program that leads to their high school diploma and Associates Degree (2 year degree). At the same time, students are provided a framework of support with tutoring and mentoring that builds success. We have very high standards for behavior, attendance and academic integrity. Students must be committed to working diligently to accelerate their learning with a focus on academic success. In addition to academics, Early College High School offers many opportunities for students to be leaders through clubs, community service, and elective courses which instill in students our motto of "Rising Above, Going Beyond, and Conquering All!"

    Please note, Early College High School has its own application and lottery.
