Davie County Early College High School (DCECHS) is intended to provide successful, challenging, and meaningful experiences for students who may or may not be reaching their potential. While students benefit from an accelerated academic program, the school’s mission is particularly focused on students who are first generation college completing, at risk for dropping out of high school, and/or historically underrepresented in college populations.
The graph below contains demographic information for our school for the 2015-2016 school year.
