St. Philip’s College Early College High School’s nationally ranked program offers the student who is at-risk or under-represented in college, the chance to earn the Associate of Arts or Associate of Applied Science degrees for free. Students begin to take college classes during their freshmen year and transition to full-time college students their junior year. As a support to our students, we provide a high school counselor, college bound advisor, and a college liaison. Being situated on a college campus offers our students a true “college-going experience” with computer labs, college bookstore, library, study centers, and a student center with billiard tables, gaming consoles, coffee shop, and a six-lane bowling alley.
