The Early College High School program at Cumberland Regional High School allows incoming ninth-graders to enroll in a rigorous four-year program, featuring a sequence of high school, dual-credit, and dual-enrollment classes, that leads to the completion of an associate degree prior to high school graduation.
In addition to the ECHS program, Cumberland Regional students also have the opportunity to participate in one of seven Career Technical Education (CTE) academy programs, dual-credit and Advanced Placement courses, and, beginning in fall 2022, skilled trades certification programs to make significant strides toward career and college success while still in high school.

Students interested in enrolling in the Early College High School program at CRHS should connect with their school guidance counselor and plan to apply by March of their eighth-grade year.
