ABOUT THE GOLDEN TRIANGLE EARLY COLLEGE HIGH SCHOOL

Early College High Schools are small schools, usually located on a community college campus. The four-year program is designed to provide students who desire a non-traditional high school experience with the opportunity to earn both a high school diploma and either a career technical certificate or an associate's degree. The students also have the option to earn up to two years of credit toward a bachelor's degree.

Nationwide, there are more than 200 early colleges, but the Golden Triangle Early College High School (GTECHS) was the first early college model of its kind in Mississippi.

GTECHS is a high school program currently partnered with the Noxubee County School District and the West Point Consolidated School District. It opened its doors on EMCC's Golden Triangle campus in August 2015.

While traditional extra-curricular activities such as sports and band are not available at GTECHS, students can particpate in activities at their home school districts. Activities that GTECHS does offer includes Intramural Sports, Choir, Service Club, Science Fair, and Art. Honor Societies include Mu Alpha Theta, National Beta Club and National Honor Society.
