Early College HS FAQs

Early College High School at Union Public Schools will target first-generation college students, those who come from families who have had no experience with college or expectation that their children will attend a university. 

Q: Is there a cost for Union’s Early College High School program? 

A: There will be no cost to students enrolled in Union’s ECHS program. Tuition, fees, and books will be covered by the partnership between Union Public Schools and Tulsa Community College. Students will be responsible for the cost of college admission exams. Fee waivers are available for the ACT and SAT for qualifying students.

Q: My student is enrolled in concurrent courses at Union. Can my student switch to the ECHS program?

A:  No. Students will be invited to apply to Early College High School. 

Q: Why is there a charge for concurrent college courses when there is not one for the new ECHS program?  

A: The reason has to do with how the two programs are funded.  Union Public Schools is paying TCC to offset the cost of the instructors for the ECHS program as part of this new pilot program.  The ECHS program also has an entirely different focus – recruiting first-generation college students, by invitation only – while the concurrent enrollment program is open to all students.  

Q: You say, “This program is not for everyone.”  What are the other options available to my student? 

A: Union has multiple pathways for college and career success, whether it is concurrent enrollment, Advanced Placement, Union Virtual Learning Academy, the Career Connect Program, or Early College High School. There is no “one size fits all.” Our job is to help students identify the pathway that best suits them given their talents, career interests, and future life goals.

United Way Campaign

Once again, September will be a “Month of Giving” at Union Public Schools. We appreciate the generosity of Union students, families, teachers and staff as we raise funds for the 59 partner agencies of the Tulsa Area United Way. Thank you for joining in the fun as we support the United Way’s mission of uniting people and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community.

September is School Attendance Awareness Month

School spirit is a commitment. It requires that you be here, body and soul. Without a strong base, the pyramid falls apart. It’s the same in life. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance. Absence is the spirit-killer. A crowd-pleasing routine is more than just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU

New website

Union Public Schools has a new website! We are pleased to work with our new provider Gabbart Communications. While it is a brand-new website, we have purposely designed it to be familiar. So most items will be found in the places in which you are accustomed to finding them. We are continuing to refine the site and more features, such as video, are coming. If you have a comment, please email us.
