• Early College High School Grant Awarded to HCC-Northeast

    Early college high schools were designed to increase achievement and prepare students for opportunities beyond high school, like college. The Texas Education Agency awarded Houston Community College-Northeast a grant in 2007 to create and help sustain an Early College High School. The primary goals of the ECHS Grant are to increase student achievement, college readiness and,  ultimately, the completion rate for college degrees.

    The Texas Tomorrow Fund  is a great idea to lock in the cost of college at today's rates. An even greater idea is starting your college education today for FREE.
