    Paving the Way to College
    The transition from high school to college can be difficult.  One goal of early college high schools is to smooth that transition by providing early college high school students the opportunity to experience college while still in high school.  They are slowly introduced to a college atmosphere, which helps to familiarize them with college while still receiving support from their high school.  Visit the links below to see some of the differences a student could face when going from high school to college.
