Early College High School is a high school in Salem, Oregon, United States that allows high school students to pursue college education early, similar to dual enrollment programs. When the student begins their junior year they enter cohort 2, which means that they are starting half college classes and half high school classes. By the time the student is in their senior year they are expected to be in cohort 3 (taking all college classes). Early college high school is located on the campus of Chemeketa Community College.


In 2008, 11% of the school's seniors received their high school diploma. Of 178 students, 19 graduated, 69 dropped out, 1 received a modified diploma, and 89 are still in high school.[4][5]
