School Construction (Design Only)

Project Scope

Leander ISD’s Early College High School opened in 2022, and it is housed within the Austin Community College San Gabriel campus.

Early College High School (ECHS) is an open-enrollment high school that allow students an opportunity to receive both a high school diploma and either an associate degree or at least 60 college credit hours toward a baccalaureate degree.
