About the Learning Program
Tri-County Early College focuses on project-based learning, STEM-focused learning activities, competency-based assessment, experiential hands-on activities, college courses, 21st century skills, Tony Wagner’s survival skills, college visitation experiences each year, trust levels that require students to take responsibility for their own learning, and a service learning component requiring students to achieve 100 hours of volunteer work by the time they graduate from high school. Student voice and choice is a strong part of our approach so that students can take ownership and feel highly engaged with their work.
