ECHS students can earn 60 hours of college credit setting them on a fast track to college and degree completion. Utilizing Yosso’s (2005) Community Cultural Wealth as a lens, this qualitative multi-case study examined the experience of six ECHS graduates, their self-perceptions of their own college readiness, and their definitions of college readiness.
