About ECHS

Areas of Study

Del Valle has partnered with Austin Community College to provide our ECHS young scholars with an educational opportunity to earn their high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree simultaneously, while still in high school.

Benefits of ECHS

ECHS students take advantage of the free courses offered to them.  They work closely with their cohorts and teachers and professors to ensure they meet the requirements needed to earn their Associate of Arts degree. Especially, since it is free! It’s like having a two-year college scholarship before graduating 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.
