TCC and EISD Open New Early College High School

FORT WORTH, Texas (Aug. 29, 2014)
As part of their commitment to foster a college-going culture, Tarrant County College South Campus and Everman Independent School District are joining together to open the new Tarrant County College South/Everman ISD Collegiate High School. The school is housed in a newly constructed 12,000-square-foot structure at the Everman Davis Ninth Grade Center on the Joe C. Bean Campus.
TCC and EISD officials are expected to be joined by community leaders and elected officials to officially open the new school with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The school opened last week with 58 students. It is staffed by a principal, dean, counselor and seven teachers.

The ECHS building in Everman will host ninth and 10th grade students who will receive instruction via TCC Connect, which administers TCC dual credit classes. Junior and senior students will be transported to TCC South Campus for instruction.
Students have the opportunity to graduate with an associate degree in several areas including Automobile Technology-Engine, Computer-Aided Drafting and Design (CADD), Education and Heating, Air-conditioning & Refrigeration Technologies (HART).
TCC graduated its first Early College High School students in May with associate degrees from the Marine Creek Collegiate High School (MCCHS), about a month before they graduated with their high school diplomas. MCCHS opened at TCC Northwest Campus in fall 2010 with a freshman class from Lake Worth Independent School District. The first Fort Worth ISD students enrolled in fall 2011.
