Thomas Holloway Early College
Thomas Holloway Early College (THEC) at Royal Holloway Academy is designed for motivated high school students, who seek academic challenges and want to get a head start on advanced academic goals. THEC is a four-year accelerated program designed as an alternative to the traditional high school program by providing an opportunity for students at Royal Holloway Academy to earn both a high school diploma and an Associate in Arts degree while in high school.
Dual enrollment allows students to take college courses while enrolled in high school. These courses satisfy requirements for credit at the high school and college level. High school students who complete dual-enrollment courses generally take fewer courses in college and save money on total college costs. Being enrolled in the Dual Enrollment Program: Thomas Holloway Early College does not guarantee an Associate Degree to any student.
THEC exposes students to opportunities, provides students with access to college courses, removes barriers, and transforms lives through early exposure to industry and higher education. Additionally, Holloway College provides students with opportunities to pursue credentials for employment, transferability, and degree completion through innovation, forward-thinking, and industry partnerships.
