Learn and Earn High Schools
Just a little something for you to know . . .
A top priority is reforming public education in North Carolina so students are ready to succeed either in college or in meeting the workforce demands of the global economy. One of the key components of North Carolina's high school reform are the Learn and Earn high schools. Union County Early College is one of the 42 Learn and Earn schools currently in operation on university and community college campuses around the state. These schools allow students to obtain a high school diploma plus an associate's degree or two years of transferable university credit with just one additional year of study.
