About Gaston Early College High School

  • The Early College is an innovative magnet school partnership with Gaston College that offers rigorous academics, state-of-the-art technology, small classes that foster group discussion and interaction, enriching activities, and much more.

    Students have an opportunity to receive a high school diploma, complete college courses, and earn an associate in arts, associate in science, and/or associate in engineering degree.  Although students attend high school an extra year (grade 13) to allow for completion of the college courses, they graduate with an academic advantage over their peers.

    Without question, the Early College is a unique high school experience for students as they go to school on the Gaston College campus in Dallas and learn what it is like to be in a college environment.

    Students who will be in the ninth grade for the 2020-2021 school year may apply for this program.  A lottery process will be used to determine the students who will attend the Early College.
