Northwest Early College Celebrates 10th Anniversary, Partnership With EPCC, Canutillo ISD

Northwest Early College High School (NECHS) held a celebration Wednesday to commemorate the school’s opening in 2008.

“EPCC will be marking the 10th anniversary of two of its 12 early college high schools this summer: Northwest Early College High School, in partnership with Canutillo ISD, and Transmountain Early College High School, with El Paso ISD, both opened in July 2008,” Tonie Badillo, Dean of Dual Credit and Early College High Schools (ECHS) said.

“EPCC’s early college high school initiative has provided a unique opportunity to the youth in our region to earn an associate’s degree while in high school.”

ECHS initiative is designed to allow students to simultaneously earn a high school diploma and an associate’s degree in four years.

School officials, via a news release said, the ECHS “must target and enroll students who are historically underrepresented in higher education, including economically disadvantaged, first-generation, English language learners and minority students.”

The ceremony –  held in the school’s grotto to honor current students, faculty and graduates – was followed by a field day at the adjacent West Side Soccer Complex.
