The Early College Academy is designed to provide qualifying FCHS scholars the opportunity to experience college level academics. Scholars will have the opportunity to garner college credits through both Dual Enrollment and Advanced Placement (AP) courses as early as 9th grade. The increased rigor of these offerings will familiarize scholars with the thinking, writing, problem-solving, and research skills they will see on a university campus. Research shows that students who are introduced to college level courses in high school are more likely to graduate from high school and significantly more likely to enroll in college and earn a degree.
