Early College & Career Options (ECCO) is an alternative high school offering a state-accredited diploma through credit recovery opportunities. Our academic programs stress equity, community, and self-advocacy through trauma informed teaching practices. ECCO offers four Career and Technical Education (CTE) pathways: Natural Resource Management, Computer Science, Construction & Engineering and Business Entrepreneurship. Our smaller class sizes offer students more personalized instruction and focus on goal setting for post-secondary career and college opportunities.
ECCO also offers a GED program, house in the Lane Community College Downtown Center, as another option for high school completion. Staff provide instructional support with the online curriculum and content needed to earn a GED. Testing takes place off-site and at flexible times during the day.
If you are interested in an alternative education placement, talk to your high school counselor. ECCO and ECCO GED are both referral-based programs.
