HSI Early College Program

The HSI-Early College Program (HSI-ECP) is a federally funded grant project through the U.S. Department of Education that focuses on early college initiatives and introduces our Latinx and low-income high school students to college via participation in Dual Enrollment.

Dual Enrollment is an opportunity for high school students to take college-level courses that count for both high school and college credit.

Why Consider Dual Enrollment?

  • Earn college credit while you're still in high school
  • Save money on college tuition
  • Take less time to earn a college degree
  • Take advantage of college resources
  • Get a head start on your future career


  • Dual Enrollment Course Offerings
  • Academic & Career Counseling
  • Bilingual College Success Workshops
  • Familia, Mentorship & Community Building

Participating School Districts


Students must:

  • Be at least 14 years old or having started 9th grade

And meet one or more of the following:

  • Self-identify as LatinX or other historically under-resourced community
  • Qualify for free or reduced-priced lunch
  • Attend a participating high school
