Help a Fellow Griffin

Here at ECA we take care of each other and a small school like ours can sometimes be like a family. On August 4th, Daniel Guillen, an 11th grader was diagnosed with stage 4 Rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS), a soft tissue cancer. His mother, Claudia Aguilar has been caring for him diligently and has not left his bedside. Unfortunately, this has resulted in Claudia needing to quit her job in order to ensure Daniel has the care he needs. The consequences of this have only been compounded by an already struggling economy due to COVID-19.

ECA has launched a coordinated effort to assist the Guillen family with expenses outside of medical bills. If you would like to help, please click the button below.  Thank you for supporting our ECA family members.

What Is Early College?

“Early college” means a secondary school that provides only a curriculum that is designed in a manner that requires each student to enroll in and complete secondary and postsecondary courses while enrolled in the four years of high school such that, upon successful completion of the curriculum, the student who successfully completes the curriculum will have completed either the requirements of a high school diploma and an associate’s degree or other postsecondary credential or at least sixty credits toward the completion of a postsecondary credential. The curriculum must be designed to be completed within four years.
