Early College

Early Colleges are schools that partner with a local school system and a University System of Georgia institution to blend high school and the first two years of college. The schools bring high school juniors and seniors to USG institution campuses to immerse students in a college-going culture and connect them with postsecondary experiences including the opportunity to earn dual enrollment credits. Early Colleges address the unique mission to raise the high school graduation and postsecondary success rates of minority, first generation college and low-income youth. CSU partners with Early College Academy of Columbus.
