I loved this school! I went here for sophomore through senior year and I was able to earn 60 college credits to my name without having to spend any money on college tuition! It offered me a more diverse atmosphere and offered me an academic challenge. It definitely made me more college ready than any other High School could have offered, and it helped me ease into the college life and adulthood instead of being thrown into it fresh out of a less challenging High School atmosphere. The teachers are great and truly want you to succeed and look out for you and try to help you be a better student. Students were still able to participate in the sports and extracurricular groups they liked through their High School District, and everyone created an academic path that was personalized just for their needs. I definitely would recommend this school to anybody who asked.

I loved the ECA program! I was able to take classes that interested me with the freedom of a college schedule and when I went on to Grove City College for undergrad, I was able to transfer most of my credits! The ECA definitely prepared me for my undergrad experience and I was ready for college.
It's a great program to get into to get a head start in college. Your first semester you'll finish taking a couple high school courses, unless you test into a college course. After meeting the requirements and showing college readiness, you'll soon be taking your first college course. You start off pretty easy, taking entry level courses such as math and american government, and then once you pick a major, you'll move on to more major intent courses. Overall, it's a great program and I'd recommend it to anyone looking to further their education. The program admits 9th-11th graders.
