Application & Lottery Process

Any current Sheldon ISD 8th grade student may apply for Sheldon Early College High School for the 2024 - 2025 school year.  Students are selected via a lottery.  Students do not have to currently be enrolled in pre-AP classes.  Please note, most ECHS classes will be pre-AP, AP, or college level courses.  ECHS provides many avenues for support for students to transition into the ECHS environment.  The number 1 predictor of success in ECHS is the student's level of academic dedication!
