    The Three E's of Early College

    • Early Entrance: 11th grade students enter a college program while still in high school. They benefit from a curriculum that enables them to earn their high school diploma and earn college credits with no cost to themselves for tuition, fees, and books.

    • Early Exit: Students may complete the program with minimum of 48 transferable credits. Flushing Raider Early College students attend high school classes as well as college courses. This moves them ahead of a traditional schedule with college credits that match the students' chosen career pathways.

    • Eary Success: Once the students complete the program, they are poised for immediate success. Students have the option to begin work immediately in their chosen field (if applicable) or to continue to work toward a Bachelor's degree.
