The Daviess County Public Schools district will present an informational meeting regarding the Early College Academy at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30, at Owensboro Community and Technical College. The meeting will take place in Room 107 of the Advanced Technology Center on the main campus, 4800 New Hartford Road. If DCPS schools are closed on Jan. 30 for inclement weather, the meeting will be rescheduled.
Applications are available HERE and will be accepted until March 13 for classes to begin in the fall of 2020.
Current high school sophomores and their families are invited to attend the Jan. 30 meeting to learn more about Early College Academy. The program will include an opportunity to ask questions.
Early College Academy is open to students who are in good academic standing at their high school. Students must be on track for high school graduation, must have met college ACT benchmarks including an ACT English 18, ACT Math 19 and ACT Reading 20. Students enrolled in this program carry a rigorous course load at OCTC and are expected to graduate with both their high school diploma and an associate’s degree.
Acceptance letters will be mailed beginning the week of March 27. Additional letters of acceptance will be mailed after April ACT scores are reported to the high schools. Early College registration for those accepted will take place in April and May in the College and Career Readiness centers at the high schools. Participants will register for a time slot after receiving a letter of acceptance.
For specific questions, contact the College and Career Readiness coach or guidance counselor at your high school.
