• Please NOTE: The application process for the 2019-2020 school year has changed.

    The goal of The Early College at Guilford’s admissions process is to admit capable and diverse students.  The Admissions Team* reviews applications and accompanying documentation of prospective ninth graders and – as spaces are available – of students entering tenth, eleventh, or twelfth grades (entry at twelfth grade not recommended).  The Admissions Team conducts individualized reviews of each applicant based upon all of the information contained in each file.  The Team does not automatically admit or deny any applicant without an individualized evaluation of his or her application.

    • Grades:  A/B average
    • Completion of Math I prior to 9th grade year
    • 11th & 12th Graders:  Advanced Placement course experience preferred
    • Recommendations:  Positive academic recommendations
    • Standardized Test Results:  End-of-Grade/End-of Course results, PreACT/ACT, PSAT/SAT results, when scores are available, and any other aptitude or achievement scores from the past two years. 
    • Select 9th & 10th Graders:  ECG Academic Assessments (Early College Day)

           

         The Admissions Team uses a holistic approach to admissions and considers the following information – in addition to the aforementioned – when reviewing applications: 

    • Leadership and service experience
    • Intellectual curiosity and ability to do accelerated work
    • Responsibility and maturity-ability to make good decisions in a college campus environment
    • Interest in the early college
    • Unique talents or interests
    • Motivation and self-discipline
    • Rigor - difficulty of middle/high school courses taken

          Students’ overall profiles must indicate a level of readiness necessary for success in an accelerated high school curriculum that includes full-time college work for eleventh and twelfth grade years.
