The High School Pre-College Readiness Program provides early preparation for the rigors of both academic and social college life. It is a dual-enrollment program that gives students opportunities to expand their high school course options while earning both high school and college credits. Credits earned can be used towards an associate degree, certification, and/or 4-year degree program. ECC has collaborative and collegial partnerships with local school districts to make the transition to higher education more accessible, attractive, and affordable. ECC offers several options to start earning college credits while in High School: Enroll in college classes in your local high school; High school students come to ECC to take college classes; Attend the Pre-College Summer Program.
