    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 2020-2021 school year, we are proud to welcome the class of 2024, our fourth cohort of YHSECA students! Together, they will combine with the all of our cohorts to make our program over 400 strong. Details will be forthcoming regarding applications for the class of 2025 this fall.

     

    Once an Indian . . . Always an Indian!
