About Alexander Early College
Alexander Early College will offer accelerated learning opportunities for students in Alexander County who are first
generation college students or students who are at risk of dropping out. Students accepted into the school have the
ability to graduate high school with an associate’s degree or 60 hours of transferrable college credit. Students will not be
required to pay for tuition or textbooks.
The early college will engage students in a college culture in a four or five year program on the campus of CVCC

university. The entering freshmen class will be no larger than 75 students and will be the legacy class of 2020.
