The Early College Initiative provides students the opportunity to receive a high school diploma and an Associate Degree or up to two years of transferable college credit, by taking a mixture of high school and college classes. Booker T. Washington High School currently partners with Atlanta Metropolitan State College, Atlanta Technical College, Clark Atlanta University, and Georgia State University to offer Early College access. Our goal is to provide underserved students with exposure and support for college as they simultaneously attain their high school diploma. Students will follow an accelerated college preparatory curriculum and must complete a college readiness course and participate in a summer institute. The Early College program provides comprehensive support for student participants which aids the development of the necessary academic and social habits needed for college.
