Antelope Valley School District

Future Students

The Antelope Valley Union High School District, in partnership with Antelope Valley College (AVC), is committed to expanding educational opportunities for high school students in our valley.  As such, we are delighted to announce that we will be opening a second Early College High School in Palmdale in an effort to build upon the success of SOAR High School in Lancaster.  

Similar to SOAR High School, students will enjoy a supportive, flexible, and academically enriching environment with enhanced opportunities to earn both a high school diploma and work toward an associate’s degree at AVC.  Students will attend their high school class on the Early College High School campus located at 2270 E. Avenue Q, while simultaneously taking their college courses at the AVC Palmdale Center located at  2301 E. Palmdale Blvd.

The new Early College High School will open in the fall of 2022 with a 9th grade class, and the selection process will provide incoming freshmen SOAR High School applicants with priority.
