Royal Early College High School allows students to receive an Associates’ Degree when they graduate from Royal ISD, at no cost to their families. The program allows them the opportunity to complete a Bachelors degree just two years after high school if they choose to do so.

Royal ISD Early College High School’s primary focus is providing students from underrepresented backgrounds (i.e., at-risk, low income, and/or first generation college attendees) with the opportunity to earn 60+ college credits free of charge while attending high school. As a designated Early College High School we target students from underrepresented backgrounds; however, we encourage students of all backgrounds to apply. Early College High School is available to any Royal ISD student who meets the admissions criteria.


The mission of Royal ISD Early College High School is to prepare students to be critical thinkers, responsible citizens, and confident leaders while receiving rigorous and relevant instruction that results in the attainment of an associate’s degree and promotes personal responsibility for life-long learning and philanthropy.
