    Ysleta High School, established in 1927, has been the pride of the Lower Valley for over 90 years. In order to continue to provide the best opportunities for our students, the Ysleta High School Early College Academy (YHSECA) was founded in 2017. Here at YHSECA, students are able to engage in a varied and active high school experience while earning an Associate’s Degree. In partnering with El Paso Community College (EPCC), students enrolled at YHSECA are able to take rigorous college courses taught by accredited instructors here on campus.

    For the 2018-19 school year, we are proud to welcome the class of 2022, our second cohort of YHSECA students. Together, they will combine with the class of 2021 to make our program over 200 strong. Applications for the class of 2023 will be going out this fall.
