Dryden Early College Academy

The Dryden Early College Academy (DECA) is an exciting program for high school students who want to get a jumpstart on their college education and their careers. In this three-year, career-focused program, students participate in an integrated sequence of high school and college courses with no out-of-pocket cost for books, fees and tuition.

Dryden Early College Academy consists of:

  •  9-11th grade students enter a college program while still in high school.
  • Students may complete the program with an associate’s degree in three years (grades 11, 12, and 13) or transfer their credits to a university.
  • Students completing the program are poised to move ahead of a traditional schedule toward degrees or technical certificates that match the students’ chosen career pathways.

Student and parent information sessions are held in January.
