Michelle Obama Early College High School Admissions
 

Jackson Public Schools established the JPS-Tougaloo Early College High School (JTECHS) Program in partnership with Tougaloo College with the inaugural class beginning in August of 2018. The program operates as a small, independent program on the Tougaloo College campus. Students in the program complete Mississippi graduation requirements for high school while working on college coursework. Students may earn an associate's degree or up to two years of credits towards a bachelor's degree.

Each fall, incoming ninth-grade students are enrolled in the program and upperclassman continue their advanced coursework. To be considered, students must submit an application, fulfill admission criteria, and participate in an interview process. Final selection for admission is conducted by an external agency.

Once enrolled in the program, students must maintain a 3.0, exhibit good attendance, and display excellent citizenship.
