The Early College High School program

The Early College High School program (ECHS) offerings are a great way for High School students to gain college experience and credit in a supported setting.


Dual Credit classes provide students with the opportunity to earn high school credits while also earning college credits at the University of New Mexico - Taos branch while still in high school. 


The Taos Academy College Link (CL) program serves as a support for participating dual credit students.  It is open to eligible juniors and seniors with 3.0 GPA or higher.  College Link students develop an individualized class schedule with their CL Advisor and may attend UNM-Taos campus classes during the week (Monday-Saturday). The flexible nature of our CL program was created to allow students more class choices throughout the week. Therefore, students are held accountable for demonstrated self-direction and motivation while successfully observing both UNM and Taos Academy academic requirements and school policies.
