UNT Dallas continues its efforts to launch two new Early College High Schools at Sunset High School and Lincoln High School in Dallas Independent School District. University leadership will attend an ECHS conference this August to aid in the school’s preparation.

Sunset’s ECHS recently held its orientation, pre-bridge, and bridge programs. Several UNT Dallas faculty and staff were on site providing students with a glimpse into careers in teaching and public health.

Similar efforts are scheduled to take place soon for Lincoln’s ECHS students.

The two collegiate academies represent more than 200 high school students. These students will attend classes at their respective high schools for two years, and complete their high school career on the UNT Dallas campus starting Fall 2019.
