WWC Reviews Study of Early College High Schools on Student Outcomes

A study of Early College High Schools (ECHS) has found the program to have positive impacts on high school attendance, college readiness, staying in and completing school, general academic achievement, and college degree attainment. ECHS promotes college readiness, offers a college preparatory high school curriculum as well as college-level courses, and provides students with transferable college credit upon graduation from high school. The study is a randomized controlled trial with low attrition, and the research meets WWC group design standards without reservations.
