Description

MISSION STATEMENT
Wake Early College of Health and Sciences provides educational and work-based learning opportunities for students who will graduate ready to pursue a career in a health sciences field.

VISION STATEMENT
All students graduate with a high school diploma. Students will earn a degree, diploma, or certificate from Wake Technical Community College in a health or sciences field, strengthening the regional healthcare workforce.

SCHOOL FACTS
Wake Early College of Health and Sciences (WECHS) is a magnet school focused on health and sciences. WECHS features a partnership among the Wake County Public School System, Wake Technical Community College, and WakeMed Health and Hospitals. The school is located on the Wake Tech Health Sciences and Northern Campuses. WECHS students have the opportunity to graduate in five years with a high school diploma and an Associates of Arts (AA), Associates of Science (AS), Associates of Applied Science (AAS), transferrable diploma in science or arts, or a health science certificate. College credits completed while enrolled in the school are tuition-free and are transferable to one of North Carolina's sixteen public universities. The school's small size provides one of the most individualized environments available to Wake County students.

WECHS students complete the majority of their high school courses during their first two years in the program. The remaining three years are dedicated to students earning college credits in pursuit of associates degrees. Some college credits serve as dual enrollment credits toward a high school diploma. Students receive advisement about their course of study from both WECHS counselors and Wake Tech academic advisors. This experience provides students with the skills and knowledge necessary to advance to a four-year degree program or to enter the health science profession.
