Begin Earning Your College Degree…While Still in High School!
Education is more important than ever. To give students a jump start on a
college education while saving money for families, Jackson County’s
public school districts, along with the Jackson County Intermediate
School District and Jackson College, have come together to create the
new Jackson County Early College (JCEC).

An informational meeting will be held at Napoleon High School March 22, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. 

What is an early college?

Early colleges allow students to earn both a high school diploma and an associate degree by
completing a 13th year, all at a fraction of the cost!

When can students enroll in early college?

College courses can begin in grade 9, but students will usually begin in grade 11. College degrees may transfer more readily to a four-year institution than individual courses and credits. Students may participate in sports and extracurricular activities as usual at their high schools through 12th grade.

Students who complete the full program (through year 13) will also be able to walk with their
peers during commencement, with the official diploma conferred when they successfully exit the program.

Again, mark your calendars! 

This program will be the topic of discussion at the informational meeting

to be held at Napoleon High School March 22, 2018 at 5:30 p.m.
