• Early College Academy


     The Early College Academy (ECA) Program is a dual enrollment program. In this program students are enrolled in both high school classes and college courses while still being allowed to participate in their high school’s extra-curricular activities. The program begins with a junior cohort group and continues through to the end of student’s senior year.

    The ultimate goal of ECA is for SLPS students to graduate with a high school diploma as well as an Associate’s Degree from St. Louis Community College-STLCC at Forest Park. While in college students will gain access to all the resources provided through STLCC. Tuition, fees, and books are covered but transportation expense are the responsibility of the students.

    In order to be successful in the program students must maintain a C or better GPA in all classes. An advisor will support students’ transition from high school to college expectations preparing them to transfer and graduate with a Bachelors of Arts degree or industry recognizable credential from a technical college in their majors of interest. 

     Class of 2019 has four scholars enrolling in the ECA: Anthony Smith, Alycia Scott, Vernesser Anderson, and Arrak Hutcherson
