• Current 8th grade students: The application for the 2021-2022 school year will be uploaded on this page once the Choice window opens in early November. Please check back for a live application and deadline information. Each year, our application is live from early November to mid-January. 

    How can you prepare in the meantime? 

    • Ask teachers that are familiar with your academic and personal strengths (usually your 7th grade teachers) if they will fill out recommendations when the time comes
    • Let your school counselor, who will need to gather your transcript and testing information, know that you will be applying for the Early College Academy
    • Keep an eye out for any virtual ECA presentations and videos, which will be posted here
    • Get any of your questions answered by Jennifer Abernethy at Jennifer.Abernethy@redclay.k12.de.us


    Current 9th grade students: There will be an opportunity for current AIHS students and transfers to apply to the ECA. That window opens in the early Spring. Look for current student and transfer applications on this page in March 2021.
