Strengthen Your Commitment to Art and Design through the Early College Program

All students in grades 9 through 12, ages 14–18, may register for noncredit; high school juniors and seniors have the option of enrolling for one college credit. ECP students receive college-level instruction from SAIC's professionally practicing faculty and access to state-of-the-art classroom and student facilities. ECP students are taught to think and do in a new world of visual communication and ever-changing technology, arming them with the creative problem-solving and entrepreneurial skills that prepare them to build enriching lives for themselves.
