Our Vision, Our Mission
We at EECHS seek to accelerate our students' pursuit for higher education and immerse our students in challenging academics and experiences, instilling principles and character for life-long learning.
EECHS Mission is to provide our high school students, especially those underrepresented, the opportunity to complete a high school diploma, earn college credits, and offer a pathway to emerge as well-prepared citizens.
Our Partnership and Goals
Estacado Early College High School (EECHS) is a partnership between Lubbock Independent School District, Estacado High School and Texas Tech University. 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 are 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.
Estacado Early College High School 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

The EECHS Ambassador program markets through student voice and choice, their decision to join the early college high school program at Estacado High School to other students inside and outside of the school environment. The Ambassadors provide candid feedback to the campus administrators, as well as visitors to the campus. They provide service and leadership. They may also share information for high school, college, and career preparation journeys. Ambassadors are chosen through an application process.
