School Administrator: Early College Designs

Joel Vargas and Marc S. Miller

In fall 2002, the first three early college high schools opened their doors. Today, more than 230 schools based on early college designs serve 50,000 students in 28 states and the District of Columbia. These innovative schools are showing results. 

A radical concept when introduced a decade ago in both New York and California, early college high schools have passed their first steps with confidence. The challenge today—and the excitement of those involved—centers on learning from this successful innovation and bringing the early college design to many more young people.

Writing in School Administrator, Joel Vargas and Marc S. Miller highlight the successes of these early college high schools, as well as JFF's efforts to expand its early college work with entire school districts.
