ECHS Now Accepting Applications for Fall 2024

The Early College High School Experience: Now Accepting Applications for Fall 2024
Posted on 02/13/2024
Early College High School will be accepting 60 ninth-grade students for the 2024-2025 school year. The Early College High School was created by Deming Public Schools to provide a challenging academic program in a smaller setting. Students complete their core high school required credits during the first two years and then take college classes for the remaining two years. The goal is to graduate with a head start on college and an Associate degree.

The application process is open to any student who exhibits a sincere interest in academics and is willing to work hard to meet the demanding expectations. Free DPS busing and meals are provided as part of the school. Early college students can still enjoy the high school related activities and social experiences such as school sponsored dances, clubs, extra-curricular programs, sports, and so much more.

Early College High School is graduating its third cohort of students but has already seen great student achievement being ranked in the top ten percent of all New Mexico schools with a “School of Excellence” designation.

Applications to The Early College High School will need to be submitted by Monday, April 15, 2024. Applications can be found at http://echs.demingps.org or by contacting the school at (575) 543-1643. A parent informational meeting will be held at the school, 720 W Buckeye St on Wednesday, March 20, at 5:30 pm. This meeting is for parents and students who want more information about enrolling in The Early College High School for the Fall 2024 school year.

“Please come join us at the meeting and learn more about how The Early College High School Experience can help you prepare for your future!” expressed Bryan Simpson, Principal, Early College High School.
