Early College High School Program
Splendora High School has been awarded the designation by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) as an Early College school-within-a-school. As part of the Early College High School Program, students will take different advanced academic courses with the minimum goal of being core complete (42 college hours). In addition, students in the program can also earn an Associates Degree which is equivalent to 60 college hours.
To be a member of the Early College cohort, students must submit an application in Grade 8. All Grade 8 students are eligible to apply and there is no cost to the student to be part of the program. To remain in the program, students will have to pass all parts of the TSIA2 or an approved score on the PSAT/NMSQT, SAT, or ACT to continue in the Early College High School program by the start of their sophomore year.
Early College students will work to achieve excellence in an environment where perseverance, adaptability, integrity, and reflection are cultivated and valued. Splendora Early College prides itself on building a strong support system for students, utilizing the collaboration of the right people, using the right things, in the right way, with the right resources, and forming the right relationships.
All students in Grade 8 are eligible to apply for admission in the Early College High School program. The Early College Program is free to students. All college tuition and books are paid by Splendora ISD. The application must be completed electronically. Select here to apply.
