Early College High School (ECHS) is a school reform model that targets students at risk of dropping out of school. ECHS blends high school and college work to enable students to graduate with a high school diploma and an associate degree or 60 college credit hours toward a baccalaureate degree. General information about this program can be found in the Texas ECHS Map, and What is ECHS sections of this website.
