Successful Start for Students at Early College and CASA

Caldwell Early College High School and Caldwell Applied Sciences Academy (CASA) students started back to school on Thursday, August 11, the first day of the 2022-2023 school year.

“The staff was so excited to welcome our Mustang Family back for the 2022-2023 school year,” said Meredith Griffin, Early College principal. “The first day of school brought team building, collaboration and renewed relationships. We are looking forward to a great year!”  

These two specialized high schools, located on the campus of Caldwell Community College and Technical Institute, begin school earlier in August than the comprehensive high schools Hibriten, South Caldwell and West Caldwell, which welcome students back on August 29, 2022. Students at the Early College and CASA incorporate college classes into scheduling as early as freshman year, so their school calendar is as closely aligned with the community college course offerings that begin on August 17.

During the first few days of school, approximately 215 students have enrolled in grades 9-12 at the Caldwell Applied Sciences Academy. At the Early College, nearly 400 students are starting classes in grades 9-13, one more year if needed to complete a high school diploma and an associate’s degree at the community college at no additional cost to students and their parents.
