Early College Academy


The LVUSD Early College Academy was established in 2018 and provides students with access to a wide breadth of college coursework as high school students.  The four year high school program is specifically designed with introductory college topics during the first year, moving to discipline specific classes starting the second year. 

The Las Virgenes Unified School District launched an Early College Academy program in partnership with Moorpark College. Our current pilot cohort is in Grade 9. The program provides students with over 30 UC/CSU transferable credits via Dual Enrollment in Grades 9-12. Beyond this, the program develops the writing, inquiry, collaboration, organization, and reading skills necessary for a student to be successful in college coursework. 

The program culminates in a graduation celebration for the cohort. Throughout the four years, students receive comprehensive, consistent student support as well as opportunities to connect with other cohort members at social events. 

Given the success of the Early College Academy, LVUSD will be expanding the program to grades 6-10 for next school year. We are looking to recruit 25 students in grades 7 and 8 that display extraordinary potential, are interested in becoming part of a dual-enrollment cohort, and could benefit from this program.

More information is available via the program website. An information night will be hosted on April 22nd at 6:00 PM at the Calabasas Performing Arts Center. If interested and for more information, please RSVP here.
