The Early College Vision
Every young person needs a postsecondary credential to thrive in today's world. Yet, as a nation, we fail to provide too many young people with the educational preparation they need and that our society demands. We, the founding intermediary organizations of the Early College High School Initiative, believe that an early college school is one innovation that provides traditionally underrepresented youth with a path to and through college.
Early college schools provide rigorous, supportive learning environments that blend high school and the first two years of college. They incorporate effective instructional and structural practices common to many small schools, but their designs go further, addressing the unique mission of the Early College High School Initiative: to raise the high school graduation and postsecondary success rates of underserved youth.
All schools in the initiative strive to remove the financial, academic, and psychological hurdles that prevent too many students from entering and succeeding in college. Already, early college students are showing us that more is possible and that, with well-conceived school designs that include sustained supports, a college degree is an achievable goal for every young person.
