For the last decade, Clear Horizons Early College High School (CHECHS) has steadily raised the bar for early college high schools in Texas.

This year CHECHS is celebrating 10 years of educational excellence made possible through a partnership between Clear Creek Independent School District (CCISD) and San Jacinto College. The first of the College’s four early college high school programs, CHECHS is housed on the San Jacinto College South Campus. This allows for CHECHS students to simultaneously attend college courses while completing high school diploma curriculum requirements. In result, the students graduate high school with a diploma and an associate of arts degree.
