Abstract: Valdosta State University and Valdosta City School (Valdosta, Georgia) jointly established Valdosta early College (veca) in 2008. Veca is an epitome of the early university concept, that is, to (a) admit students with poor grades who have multiple risk factors for dropping out of school (e.g. low socio-economic status, ethnic minorities and first generation high schools or universities), and (b) provide dual enrollment courses at the university level. Vicat university is very different from almost all other early universities in the United States. Most (85 ) of the 200 early colleges currently opened in the United States begin in Grade 9. Almost all the remaining early universities start in Grade 7; Only a few are schools in grades 6-12. Veca addresses two main priorities: (a) innovation to complement impleentation of higher standards and high-quality assessments and (b) innovations that support college access and success. The primary purpose of this paper is to chronicle the genesis and development of VECA. This program is very successful, replete with research opportunities, and represents a model early college program. We plan to continue to grow VECA to ultimately include grades six through twelve and to research that growth and development.
