District 214 Early College Center (ECC)
District 214 seniors have the opportunity to participate in an honors program to earn up to 19 early college credits using online curriculum accessed through Arizona State University.
The program, located at District 214’s Early College Center at Forest View Educational Center, provides an opportunity for students to take an eight-week honors course every quarter, as well as a self-paced math course, and receive supplemental support from a District 214 teacher. Students can earn college credits through Arizona State University for completed coursework.
District 214 students can earn this credit at a reduced tuition rate, helping families save money on college. The online courses include College Algebra, English Composition, Introduction to Solar Systems and Social Science electives.
The Early College Center is open to District 214 seniors with the demonstrated ability to work independently and succeed in college-level work. Selection for this program is based on student interest, academic readiness and a counselor recommendation.
Independent Concurrent Enrollment
Outside the school day or during the summer, a student can independently enroll at Harper College to complete college-level coursework prior to high school graduation. Additionally, upon completing the course, the student can request that high school credit be granted even if the course is not offered or sponsored by the District.
To enroll in concurrent enrollment at Harper, students must be at least 16 years old or have junior- or senior-level status in high school and a minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale. Qualified high school students can enroll in one or two courses as a concurrent student with Harper College advisor approval but may not enroll as a full-time student (12 or more credit hours) in any semester. Approval for concurrent enrollment will be contingent on prerequisites for the course(s) being met, including any minimum required score on the college placement exam or ACT/SAT exam.
