Early College High School

An Early Start on a College Career

The Early College High School (ECHS) Program offers students the opportunity to graduate simultaneously with a high school diploma and a tuition-free associate degree. ECHS is hosted through a partnership with Austin Community College and operates at six AISD Early College High Schools. 

In addition to earning college credit- up to 60 hours- and preparing for future professions, students save thousands of dollars in college costs. ECHS students are enrolled in both high school and college classes and recieve support from AISD teachers and their ACC professors.
