Document Number: 6029What Is the Cost of Planning and Implementing Early College High School? - This study looks at actual budgets developed for several types of current and planned early college high schools. The author finds that costs for early college high schools appear to be on par with those of regular public high schools, within significant limitations to comparing such different institutions and the variety of school designs emerging in the initiative. According to this report, if the preliminary data on costs are borne out in the next several years of the initiative, investments in early college high school actually buy much more, providing students with the opportunity to earn significant college credit while in high school.
