Early College Program

Early College Program Logo

The Early College Program (ECP) is a new and exciting BCPS magnet program starting in the 2017-2018 school year.  In the Early College Program, students are provided with a college preparatory program that combines high school and college in a supportive, yet rigorous educational environment.  Through a partnership with the Community College of Baltimore County, students will have the opportunity to simultaneously earn a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree or up to 60 credits toward a Bachelor’s degree.  Students will earn credits through coursework completed at both the high school campus and at the community college campus throughout their 4 years of high school.  College credits are tuition free, including books, fees and transportation!
ECP is available for 9th grade admission only and applications must be completed in grade 8 through the magnet process.  Applications for the Early College Program, like all BCPS Magnet Programs, are available in the fall.  Transportation to Woodlawn High School is provided to students zoned to attend high school in the northwest or southwest areas of Baltimore County.  For more information about magnet programs in Baltimore County, please visit the Office of Magnet Program’s website at
