    Lenoir County Early College High School is a unique environment that gives Lenoir County students an awesome opportunity.  Students must apply in 8th grade and can only enter as 9th graders at the beginning of our school year. 
    Our students' academic levels are very diverse.  Grades and test scores play a role in our decision-making, but they are not the only factors.  We look at attendance, teacher recommendations, writing samples and demographics.  We do our best to reflect the population of Lenoir County with a focus on 1st generation college goers.
