An early college high school allows students to earn their high school diploma and their two-year associate degree while in high school for five years.  An early college is a rigorous program in which students are supported while accelerating their education.  There is no cost to the program for the two-year college degree. There are 3 early college options in Iredell-Statesville Schools:  Crossroads Arts & Science (located on the 3rd floor of SHS), Collaborative College for Technology & Leadership (CCTL - located on MCC’s campus), and Agriculture & Science (ASEC - on NIHS’s campus). Early colleges are on a collegiate/early calendar, and only remote shuttle bus stops are available. Parents/students must apply and be admitted to attend an early college.  Applications are online December 1st - January 15th for next school year using this website www.issnc.org/schools-programs/early-colleges
