Discover the Rewards of Early College
Waipahu High School Early College – a bold approach to strategic enrollment management for the University of Hawaii System that improves on-time graduation of underrepresented students
Save thousands of dollars on future costs for college
Thanks to a generous donation from the McInerny Foundation, you can take college courses and earn college credits at no cost to the student.
Helps you stand out and get noticed
Early College helps you standout and get noticed on your scholarship personal statement, applications for premier universities, and promotes honors recognition.
Smaller Learning Communities
Due to the smaller class sizes of its courses, Early College encourages and supports the formation of smaller learning communities. Form study groups and bond with your peers.
Fosters a "college-going" culture at the high school
The professors treat you like one of their regular students. No 'watering down' of material or special curriculum. Actual college course material.
If you decide to take one(or more) of the following 5.0 weighted courses: Math 103, English 100, History 151, Psychology 100, Sociology 100, and Speech 151, you can boost your GPA above 4.0 or it could be the course that pushes your 3.9 to a 4.0.
Earn dual credit
Take college classes that can take the place of high school classes. Taking more and more Early College classes means taking fewer and fewer high school classes. This is called “dual credit.”
Become an AA Olympian and begin working towards earning your Associate of Arts degree by your high school graduation, or become a STEM Olympian to earn an Associate in Science/ Natural Science degree by graduation.
Phi Theta Kappa serves to recognize and encourage the academic achievement of two-year college students. By taking and excelling in Early College classes, you have the opportunity to join this College honor society.
On average, Early College completers earn higher GPAs after high school
Waipahu High School students that go to Leeward Community College without Early College experience, on average earn a 2.0 GPA at LCC. Early College students who go to LCC on average earn a 3.0 GPA.
