The Early College Program is provided to students of Dorchester School District Two who are given the opportunity to take Dual Credit classes through Trident Technical College in order to earn an Associate of Science or an Associate of Arts degree upon graduation of high school. Recruitment efforts are intended for students who are typically underrepresented in colleges and universities today, but all students are able to apply.
The program is offered free of charge to all district students. The application process typically begins in the late fall and applicants are notified of acceptance to the program in the spring. Those interested can speak with the school counseling office for more information. Students must successfully pass certain areas of the Accuplacer test to qualify for the program.
