The Early College is a five year high school program that allows students to earn a high school diploma and an associate's degree from 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 one university seminar course to be eligible for the program. Once students reach 11th grade students will need to declare their intent to participate in the Early College. 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.
