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.
