Robert Vela Early College High School

A Message from the Director


     As director of the Early College High School at RVHS, I am committed to supporting our students' academic success throughout their high school journey and helping them reach their post-high school goals.  Our team of ECHS teachers and counselors will guide students as they expand their college and career readiness skills and navigate the amazing opportunities we offer through our partnership with South Texas College.       

     We are excited to welcome a new cohort of students for the 2023-2024 school year!  We look forward to partnering with parents and our community to help our students meet their full potential.
