About the Early College Program (ECP)

  • What is ECP? 

    The no-cost Early College Program (ECP) blends high school and college in a rigorous, supportive way, enabling a student to graduate from GHS with 34 transferable college credits.  That's a full year's worth of college, which means saving a year's worth of tuition, fees, books and housing at a university! All classes take place at GHS!
