How can you earn a college degree while still in High School?

J. F. Kennedy Early College High School, Memorial Early College High School, J.F. Kennedy Pathways to Technology Early College High School (P-TECH), and Memorial Pathways to Technology Early College High School (P-TECH) provide students an accelerated Dual Credit opportunity to earn an Associate's degree from Palo Alto College/ St. Philip's College or up to 60 hours of college credit as a High School student. You will be both a Kennedy Rocket or Memorial Minuteman and a Palo Alto Palomino at the same time. P-TECH provides the additional opportunity of an Industry Certification.


Early College students have the option to transfer their Palo Alto College credit to a four-year university for credit towards a bachelor’s degree. This means that you can earn a college degree in less time because you completed College courses during High School. The Early College High School academic experience is offered at no cost to the student. The Early College High School experience saves students both time and money. Our focus is on getting students on a direct college path. Please click the link below to complete your applications. All applications must be received by August 4, 2022
