    Higher learning begins here  




    The Early College is a partnership between Augusta University and Lucy C. Laney High School.  The Early College offers rigorous instruction and accelerated courses with an opportunity to attend Augusta University while simultaneously earning a high school diploma.  Early College students are able to complete upwards of sixty credit hours toward their college education during what would normally be their high school years.
