Early College High School

The Early College High School initiative is a partnership between the California Department of Education and the Chancellor's office for the California Community Colleges.

Early College High Schools are designed for young people who are underrepresented in post-secondary education, including:

  • Students who have not had access to the academic preparation needed to meet college readiness standards
  • Students for whom the cost of college is prohibitive
  • Students of color
  • First generation college-goers
  • English language learners
