Greensboro, NC, has bragging rights to some of the best schools in the country. One high school that always ranks highly on any national report is the Early College at Guilford College. Just last week, the Early College at Guilford once again topped the Newsweek list of elite public high schools. Only 20 high schools nationwide made the list.
The Early College at Guilford College is a high school nestled into the beautiful campus of the private Guilford College. Ninth- and tenth-graders take most of their courses in a separate set of classrooms. Eleventh- and twelth-graders take classes from college professors. Students graduate from high school with a high school diploma and two full years of college courses under their belts.
Although there is no tuition to attend, the competition to be admitted is fierce. Free college credits at a premium college and a reputation for excellence make this high school very popular! Less than half of those students who apply are accepted. But if your student is up for the challenge, Early College at Guilford College provides some of the best free public education in the nation!
