Expanding Student Pathways to College
In November 2021, the TUSD Board of Education approved the Early College Program, a partnership with El Camino College (ECC), which expands pathways to higher education. Starting with the 2022-2023 school year, incoming TUSD Freshman in the program will simultaneously complete their high school graduation requirements, along with completing transferable college level general education courses, as well as have the opportunity to take courses towards their major of studying.
The program will be located at North High School, with a priority given to students whose home school is North. TUSD students may open enroll to North to participate in the program, as well as non-resident (out-of-District permit) students, if space is available.
During their Freshman and Sophomore years, students will mainly take their college level classes at North High School. As they enter their Junior and Senior years, they will take some classes at ECC. The built-in flexibility of the program will allow students to fully participate in athletic and extracurricular activities at North High School. Another added benefit of the program is that it is completely free for North High students, covers the cost of tuition and books, and provides transportation between ECC and North High.
