What is Early College?

Calvary University offers an Early College option for high school juniors and seniors. Early College allows home school students, Christian school students, and others the opportunity to earn college credit while meeting high school graduation requirements. This is a great way to save time and money! Through this program, it is possible to complete the last two years of high school and the first year of college at the same time. Everyone knows that college is a major investment, so why not take advantage of an opportunity that makes the most out of your time and money?
