The Early College is a five year high school program that allows students to earn a high school diploma and up to an associate's degree from Lake Superior State University (LSSU) tuition free!!
How it works is students have a traditional 9th grade high school schedule and start to work towards their degree in 10th grade. Students who have an interest in the Early College program will need to take a one credit university seminar course during 10th grade to be eligible for the program. Once students reach 11th grade students will need to declare their intent to participate in the Early College by the first fall count day. During 11th and 12th grade students will take a combination of college and high school classes. At grade 13 students will complete their high school graduation requirement with one math or math related course and the remaining courses will be college courses that occur on LSSU's campus.
