Marysville Early College High School - Union County Innovation Center
The Marysville Early College High School (ECHS) is Ohio’s first manufacturing-related STEM Early College High School. By using a “Fast Track” school design, the program increases achievement for students as they earn 45-60 college credits and a high school diploma in four years. The ECHS drives more resources to the classroom by transforming a vacant school into a state-of-the-art innovation center where partners share space, services and programs that increases regional access to high quality, industry-standard career/tech, college, and workforce-development programs. The school serves nearly 2,000 youths and adults.
The impact of our public education system is further enhanced by the three career centers serving Union County: Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, Tolles Career & Technical Center, and Tri-Rivers Career Center. These institutions provide cutting-edge education and career training opportunities for students by partnering with local employers to develop customized curriculum, specialized training programs, and internships.
