Principal's Welcome

Marjon Ford

Dear GEC Students and Parents/Guardians,


We are excited to start a new school year that focuses specifically on “Developing a College State of Mind”.  We are committed to providing students with experiences that help create the Ideal Graduate.  Teachers participated in professional development this summer to continue to grow and support project based learning experiences for students that prepare them for being college and career ready.  Our new class of 6th graders attended a week long camp at Furman University where they participated in activities that introduce the school-wide learning outcomes of knowledge and thinking, written and oral communication, collaboration and agency. 


Greenville Early College teachers will continue to implement research-based instructional strategies to engage students in the learning process.  We believe that all students should graduate from high school prepared for meaningful post-secondary opportunities.  In addition to academically rigorous courses, we strive to provide students with authentic enrichment opportunities that make real world connections for students.  Parents,  teachers, support staff and administrators all add value to the experiences of our students.


Please continue to visit our website for updates and information.  We appreciate the support of the Greenville Early College community.  Please feel free to contact us for more information or further assistance. 


Have a great year! 



Marjon A. Ford
