Application for 21/22 School Year

Students interested in being a part of the Vail Early College must go through an application process. The purpose is to make sure that the Vail Early College is the right fit for the student and they are ready academically and emotionally for college a year early.

The application process is as follows:

1. The process starts with students completing an online application, which includes recommendations from two core content teachers and a submission of an application essay.

2. Applications received are evaluated and students who qualify for an interview are contacted to schedule an interview time, which will begin in February.

3. Once the interview and final evaluation of student’s application is complete, the student is notified via email if they are accepted.
