Making the Grade: Texas Early College High Schools Prepare Students for College. Executive Summary
Jobs for the Future
Early college high schools are improving student outcomes in Texas. This performance is being achieved by youth who are underrepresented in college, including Hispanic youth, economically disadvantaged students, and first-generation college goers. In improving readiness for college and careers, early college schools have become an essential part of Texas' strategy to develop a young workforce that can compete in a global, knowledge-based economy. The benefits to taxpayers of having more students progress successfully toward college completion makes the state's support for starting up these sustainable schools a prudent move. This brief discusses the successes and lessons of two Texas early colleges: Mission Early College High School in El Paso and Collegiate High School in Corpus Christi.
