Manor Early College High School provides those students who have been historically underrepresented in higher education the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and associate degree through rigorous academic coursework and well-planned systems of support.
We envision that every MECHS graduate will not only earn a high school diploma and 60 transferable credit hours, but will also embrace a culture of intellectualism, social awareness, and productive citizenry.
MECHS Student Culture
A bar of very high expectations is set for the students of Manor Early College High School. These expectations extend to our students’ character, academics, attendance, and discipline. The deepest forms of learning take place in a setting that develops students' self-discipline and self-advocacy. The ECHS learning community also pushes students to acquire the soft skills necessary to be successful in any social context – respect, professionalism, punctuality, communication, as well as compliance with standards and policies.
Associate Degree Plans
Associate of Arts in General Studies
The General Studies program is designed for students who would like to benefit from two years of a broad, general college education (core curriculum). General studies students develop their ability to think critically and analytically, to write effectively, to work well with others, to solve problems creatively. Core curriculum courses are 100% transferable to all 4-year public institutions in Texas.
