What is ECHS?

Early College High Schools (ECHS) blend high school and college curricula 

simultaneously to give students the opportunity 

to earn up to two years of college credit (60 hours) 

while they finish high school.

ECHS is an educational transformation model that

was developed and implemented by Jobs for the

Future and our National partners, with funding

from the Gates Foundation, over the last 10 years.

UECHS will bring college into High School to

provide underserved youth with a path to and

through post-secondary education.
