The Early College High School began its recruitment at Cedar Creek Middle School, the first of several area schools. Erica Shoulders-Royster, Principal brought key members of her staff and several students to speak to the eighth graders about the high school experience at the Early College. A representative from Vance Granville was also on hand to answer questions. The Early College High School is a five-year commitment, but at the end of their studies, students graduate with both a high school diploma and an associates degree. The rigorous program involves balancing normal coursework with college classes taken on the campus of Vance Granville. Parents can learn more about the experience during the March 7 information session. The application deadline is March 14. For a complete listing of key dates please see below.
