Early College High School

Early College High Schools (ECHS) are usually located on or near a college campus and provide high school students who might not otherwise consider attending college the opportunity to graduate with a high school diploma and 60 college credit hours.

ECHS differs from dual credit programs in that its focus begins in 9th or 10th grade, whereas dual credit programs are usually offered beginning in the 11th or 12th grade.

TCC has partnered with the below ISDs to offer ECHS to Tarrant County high school students. For more information about a specific ISD's ECHS, please visit their ECHS webpage.
