About the Early College High School Program

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

In addition to earning up to 60 hours of college credits 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 they are on the right track to a successful college career.
