Each school will be open to the public for tours, demonstrations and access to staff and facilities. Families and prospective students will gain an understanding of campus life and the wealth of opportunities available in their community.

Families will learn about the unique opportunities available to students, including Career Launch, Career and Technical Education, dual language programs, fine arts, athletics and advanced academics.

Campuses look forward to welcoming visitors who want to learn what makes their school special.

About Early College High School program

ECHS is hosted through a partnership with Austin Community College and operates at six AISD Early College High Schools: Crockett, Eastside Memorial, Lanier, LBJ, Travis and Reagan.

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 receive support from AISD teachers and their ACC professors to ensure that they are on the right track to a successful college career.
