  • Update for Accepted Students for the 2020-2021 School Year 

    Please look for an email to the email address you provided in your application.  In the initial acceptance letter, students were instructed to return their Accepting/Declining Form to their middle school counselors when they returned to school.  Due to the extended school cancellation, Ms. Seifred is emailing accepted students some critical information.  
    Monday, we will contact students by phone who have not responded to the email.  
    If students or parents have any questions or concerns, please email Ms Seifred at
    Thank you so much for continuing to assist us and your students who will be attending Early College.

Welcome to Early College High School!

  • Welcome to Brunswick Early College High School’s webpage.  Students who apply and are accepted to Brunswick County Early College High School become members of a small, student-centered academic community. Through the collaborative efforts of students, teachers, parents/guardians, businesses, community, and Brunswick Community College, we create a culture that fosters respectful and responsible students while keeping positive relationships as our core value. Students experience an innovative approach to learning, which enables them to meet rigorous academic standards while enjoying relevant experiences. Early College High School is designed to be a five year school, students can earn both a North Carolina High School Diploma and an Associate's Degree or transferable college credit from Brunswick Community College.  However, it is possible for some students to graduate in four years.


    Our school motto is “Success is Our Tradition.”  This is evident to our stakeholders as they witness the development of life-long learners who are positioned for success in the competitive global marketplace.  Recognized by the US Department of Education as a 2017 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, our graduation rate is consistently at 100 percent, we are a North Carolina Stem School of Distinction, and we maintain a grade of “A” on the North Carolina School Report Card.  In 2017- 18, our graduating class of 48 students earned a total of 51 Associate’s Degrees from our partner school, Brunswick Community College.  Trend data indicate that between 70 and 80 percent of each graduating class plans to attend senior institutions upon graduation.
