EARLY COLLEGE PROGRAM

IVC Early College Program Overview - Incoming Freshmen 2019-2020

*Updated 2/26/2019*
 
If you are the parent of an 8th grader interested in Beckman’s Early College program, you will need to attend our 8th Grade Parent Night on March 28, 2019 at 6:00pm.  Be sure to attend the Early College breakout session.
 
Early College is not for everyone, so if you decide you want to pursue it, you will have to apply & get admitted to the program. Our program is a 4-year commitment. You will receive an application packet at the parent night; you can also print the forms below to begin the process.  A completed application, current transcript (may be printed off Aeries--does not have to be official) and 3 teacher recommendations must be returned to Beckman on April 19, 2019.
 
Please Note:  Only current 8th grade students will be considered for the 2023 cohort. The  2020, 2021 and 2022 cohorts are closed to new applicants.
