    About Us

    Early College High School is a college preparatory educational program strategically designed to fulfill and exceed University of California “a-g” admission requirements.  ECHS is the creation of a strong and influential college bound culture with high expectations for all students.  Average class sizes of 25 or less provides a focus on personalization of instruction.  A climate of high expectations and a strong academic culture prepares our graduates to be competitively eligible for admission to the University of California, California State University, and institutions of higher learning.

    The design principles of Early College High School can be seen across the board with the small size of the school, the emphasis on integrated project-based learning and student exhibitions, an eight period block schedule, and Coastline Community College courses for which they receive college units through concurrent enrollment.  Early College High School engages a wide spectrum of students, offering a curriculum that is aligned to Common Core Standards and supported by technology.  The school’s mission includes the development of strong character, good judgment, and ethical behavior.
