Jimmy Carter Early College High School serves students from low-income families, students from disadvantaged groups, first generation college-goers, students who may not have received the academic preparation necessary to meet college entrance standards, students who are English Learners, students whose family obligations keep them at home, and students for whom the cost of college is prohibitive.
During the spring semester, recrutiment at the middle school begins. Presentations to grade 8 students showcase the programs and benefits of Jimmy Carter Early College High School. Counselors distribute and collect applications to verify the demographic information through PEIMS data. Once verification is complete, applications are submitted to Central Office. Once Central Office has applications, a performance-blind, open-access lottery system is performed to select incoming grade 9 students.
Jimmy Carter provides grade 8 students with recruitment brochures to highlight the program and benifits of our campus.
