Pitt County Schools Early College High School
Originally opened in 2015 and located in temporary trailers on the Pitt Community College (PCC) main campus in Winterville, the Early College High School is the product of a partnership between Pitt County Schools and PCC. JKF ARCHITECTURE was selected to design the new permanent location after a previous JKF-led project for the College bid $3 million under budget in 2015. The Pitt County Schools Early College High School was delivered on time and within budget in 2018, and is now one of the premier facilities for STEM education in North Carolina.
At a cost of approximately $3.4 million, the new 13,000 SF Early College High School is home to 275 students and 16 faculty and staff members. It features eight classrooms and a multipurpose room. Instruction centers on science, technology, engineering, and math. Enrollment is competitive. Students who participate in PCC clubs, organizations, and student activities throughout the academic year can graduate in four to five years with both a high school diploma and an associate degree from the community college.
