What is an Early College High School?

Through the Early College program, students at participating high schools have the opportunity to earn up to 60 college credits toward an associate degree or a certificate while earning their high school diploma. Course offerings begin in the 9th grade.

Why is early college model successful? 

Early colleges make college success a reality for students that have traditionally been underrepresented in post-secondary education. By working in close partnership, school districts and institutions of higher education are able to serve students in a more personalized and efficient manner that leads to higher levels of student success. 

Who can participate?

West Valley Early College High School provides opportunities for all students to successfully obtain college credits. Our early college model is designed to support student interest in college and careers and to individualized learning. Students do not have to be a straight A student, they just need to be dedicated and committed to earning college credits while earning a high school diploma.

Will every West Valley Early College High School student receive college credit?

West Valley provides opportunities for all students to successfully attain college credits through dual enrolled courses as well as CTE pathways. Students can choose as many of our dual enrolled courses as they would like. Knowledgeable counselors are on staff to assist them with choosing these courses based on individualized pathways.
