May he always make ECHS Proud!
Hi. I am applying for my son. Is there a requirement for new students to attend some sort of summer classes? TIA. :)
Can a student going into his 12 grade year attend? Or is this just for students going into 9th grade?
Teacher Appreciation 2018...still feeling appreciated, Vanessa Denney!!
Hi! I have a freshman starting tomorrow. I went to find out the time of the bus will be at Village Square in West Ashley. I cannot find any bus stops in West Ashley at all. I’ve called Durham Bus Services, ECHS and CCSD and have not been able to reach anyone. How can I find out where the bus stops are? I looked on the ECHS website and when I went to look at bus routes there is nothing showing for West Ashley. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!
City Hall Congratulations
I could not find any information on the 2019-2020 school year. Do applications open up on a certain date?
Today (Wednesday , 8/22) only (starting by 9AM ET), donations to projects on — including ours! — will receive a 50% boost from The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Any donation to our “We Still Need To Play!” project is greatly appreciated!

We enjoyed the presentation!

The Palmer Black History Month Spotlight “African Americans and Voting” was a success! The lecture by History Department faculty member Donald West was informative, and the panel, which included TTC and ECHS students Shantell Davis, Ivy Grinnage, and Danyen Richardson; the legal director of the ACLU of South Carolina , Susan Dunn; and Joan Zaleski from the League of Women Voters Charleston, debated important questions. Thanks to TTC staff Regina Smart, James Lewis, and Valerie Jenkins for presiding, TTC student Amber Knox for introducing the guest speaker, Crystal Owens for helping with the raffle, and Darleene Bratton for greeting attendees with programs in hand. Also we thank the CCSD Early College High School for their continued partnership in creating timely and impactful campus events.

The ECHS recruitment crew is @tridenttech bright and early today. We’re ready to hire more enthusiastic future Tiger teachers for 20-21! #earlycollegecharleston

We are so lucky to be on a campus where students always come first!

Sneak preview of the new Clothes Closet opening soon! Thanks to Black Student Association Officer Samantha Sturges and work-study student Amber Knox (pictured here) for their hard work moving clothes into the Closet. Also many thanks to the FMO team Michael Kennedy and Pete Burbage for putting in the shelving and racks; Dosha Wynne and Laura Bradshaw for planning the layout, sorting the clothes, and organizing the records; Regina Smart and James Lewis for coordinating efforts; to Dr. Charlotta Creel, Crystal Owens, Claudia Brown, Gregory Cushing, and Darleene Bratton for their support; and to so many faculty and staff who have donated clothes. Because of all this hard work, students will be able to come pick out free interview and work outfits soon. Students make huge financial sacrifices - getting new outfits for interviews or work shouldn’t be one of them!
