Greenville Early College is a 9th-12th grade invitation-only program within Greenville County Schools. The Early College Program is housed at the University Center of Greenville. GEC is a partnership between Greenville County Schools and the Early College at Greenville Technical College Dual Enrollment Program, to introduce and provide college experiences, academic assistance, and acceleration for students.
In grades 9-12, students complete the necessary coursework and Carnegie Units to graduate from high school with a state high school diploma. Students who are academically ready are given the option to take college courses starting in their junior year of high school. With our partnership with Greenville Technical College, students may earn enough credits to graduate with their Associates Degree.
