A partnership began in November 2015 between Lubbock Independent School District, Estacado High School and Texas Tech University when a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by the LISD Board of Trustees and Texas Tech.
This partnership is one of the few in the nation that includes a Tier One university, and is the only one of its kind in the Big 12. Early College High School campuses give students the opportunity to begin earning college credit in their ninth-grade year and up to 60 hours by the time they graduate from high school, a value of up to $40,000.
Students will be admitted through an application process, with additional requirements for those outside of the Estacado High School attendance zone. The Estacado Early College High School will only be offered to students within the Lubbock Independent School District. Applications are available December 1, 2016 and may be found online or at any Lubbock ISD middle school.
Estacado Early College High School, like all schools following the early college high school model, strives to increase high school and college graduation rates among students who are not widely represented on college campuses. To this end, our mission includes:
- Accelerated instruction in a school-within-a-school model
- Preparing students to start college coursework in their ninth-grade year with intensive coursework beginning their tenth-grade year
- The opportunity for students to graduate from high school with up to sixty (60) hours of their college education and tuition free
- An impressive faculty, experienced in college preparatory instruction
We hope you will consider Estacado Early College High School as your choice and beyond. Please contact us if we can provide additional information.
Best of luck in your high school and college endeavors!
