Del Valle ISD has partnered with Austin Community College to provide our Early College High School (ECHS) young scholars with an educational opportunity to earn their high school diploma, an Associate of Arts degree simultaneously, while still in high school.
Early College High School (ECHS) students take advantage of the free courses offered to them. They work closely with their cohorts, teachers, and professors to ensure they meet the requirements needed to earn their Associate of Arts degree. Especially, since it is free!
Early College High School (ECHS) students can participate in extracurricular activities during their freshman and sophomore years. However, the college course load increases during the junior and senior years, requiring careful consideration and planning to continue participating in both.
