Georgia College Early College (GCEC) is a 7th grade through 12th grade public educational institution that is located on GC's campus. GCEC is an alternative to the traditional middle and high school with partnerships among Baldwin County and Putnam County schools, Oconee RESA (Regional Educational Service Agency) and the John H. Lounsbury College of Education. Early College's Legacy Class began fall 2006 with an enrollment of 53 students. Early College prepares students to complete high school, gives them an opportunity to earn college credit, and assists them in becoming eligible for the Hope Scholarship.
Currently, Georgia has several Early Colleges. Each school is uniquely designed to meet the needs of the students in the local communities it serves. Early Colleges may be found on high school or college campuses or in rural, suburban or urban settings. The curriculum varies among schools to meet the requirements of the Department of Education and the school's local partner college or university. Seed money for the Early College initiatives came from grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The mission of GCEC is to optimize our unique access to higher education for learners' continuous development.
Our vision is to build a model early college that guarantees the development of intellectual and creative habits of world-class leaders who contribute to a strong community.
