Academic Standards

The academic program at The Early College is built to challenge students to reach a higher level of academic potential, and to prepare students for college level courses. Teachers provide a great deal of support to help students succeed, but students will need to do their part as well. Students should expect homework every night and come prepared to class each day with questions and ideas.

For students to be successful, it is recommended that students have demonstrated proficiency in the following:  Algebra I, Geometry, English 9th, English 10th, two core Social Studies credits, two Foreign Language credits (same language), and two core sciences (one being Biology) prior to entering The Early College.
