Early College High School Programs
We understand that one of the biggest concerns parents have is the future cost of college. With Arlington ISD Early College High School options, students can earn an associate degree for free!
With three programs to choose from, students can graduate from high school with up to 60 college credits and some with a professional workplace certification, paid for by the Arlington ISD. They can gain a head start in college or launch right into a successful career.
Give them early access to career success in health sciences, cybersecurity, business, logistics, engineering or any number of other promising industries!
Prepare your student to follow their curiosity and develop essential critical thinking skills. Our world-class STEM Academies provide a well-rounded education that includes literacy, fine arts and electives with a focus on STEM.
Nurture their love for STEM while giving them a competitive edge in their future career. Provide them a place to fully explore what they love by applying to a STEM Academy.
