ECHS Schedule & Support

Class Schedule

Early College HSThe ECHS program will begin with a college preparatory curriculum in the ninth grade; beginning in 10th Grade, college courses will be gradually added to the student's schedule.

College courses will be introduced on a graduated basis:

  • Sophomore year:  3 college courses
  • Junior year:  8 college courses
  • Senior year:  9 college courses

Camp College/summer program: ECHS students will be expected to attend a summer “bridge experience” to orient them to college-level expectations, study, research, and time management skills, and to build relationships with fellow students.  High school credit may be earned for the bridge experiences.  

Tulsa Community College instructors will teach the courses, which will begin in August 2018 (the students’ sophomore year).  

Students will be able to take up to 19 combined college credit hours and high school classes per semester, exempting six hours cocurricular club or organization hours.

ECHS classes will be held primarily at the Union Collegiate Academy (UCA), although labs and summer classes may be held at the TCC Southeast Campus.  College classes will take place on a Monday/Wednesday and Tuesday/Thursday schedule, with science labs and study classes on Fridays. 

Student Supports

Early College HSGrade alerts for ECHS students in college courses will be generated every two weeks. 

Study sessions and tutoring will be required.  

Students must maintain a 2.0 GPA to remain enrolled in college classes.
Replacements into high school courses will be possible – and may be necessary – to ensure students do not lose credits toward high school graduation.  

TCC advisors will conduct individual or group college advisement conferences, including degree audits, two times per year with all ECHS students.  ECHS counselors will track credit requirements for the high school diploma.  

ECHS students will have access to the TCC Writing Lab, Math Lab, Library, and other college facilities and services available to other TCC students. 

During the regular academic year, transportation to TCC Southeast Campus during the school day will be provided by the district.  Students may be responsible for their own transportation during the summer or evening classes at TCC. 

 

“Many students are unsure whether they have the ability to be successful in college.  The best Early College programs that I’ve seen start early in building up that confidence.  They prepare students by teaching them study skills. They raise the rigor in high school courses so that students are well prepared to do the college work, so they see success after success. Then they feel good about going off to college when they’re finished with high school.” — Mary Cantrell, Associate Professor of English/George Kaiser Family Foundation Faculty Endowed Chair of Concurrent Enrollment, TCC

Native American Heritage Month

Native American Heritage Month is a time to celebrate rich and diverse cultures, traditions, and histories and to acknowledge the important contributions of Native people. Heritage Month is also an opportune time to educate the general public about tribes, to raise a general awareness about the unique challenges Native people have faced both historically and in the present, and the ways in which tribal citizens have worked to conquer these challenges.
