All prospective 8th-grade students and parents are invited to attend.

Between Tuesday, Feb. 15 and Friday, Feb. 25, the school will conduct parent-student interviews on the RCEC campus, and on March 11,  acceptance and waiting list letters will be mailed to all applicants.

The goal of the Early College High School Program admissions process is to select and admit a diverse group of academically capable students in the Vicksburg Warren School District who have a genuine interest in pursuing a unique and rigorous program focused on earning a high school diploma along with an associate’s degree.

Elements considered for admission include academic potential, references, interview, diversity and characteristics including intellectual curiosity, self-motivation, maturity, self-discipline and a desire for a non-traditional high school setting.
