Collaborating for Change
Good ideas deserve great support. CELL created the Indiana Early College High School Network in 2006 to unite schools and communities around this innovative approach to education. The Network offers professional development opportunities and technical assistance to promote Early College. Using strong connections, strategic alliances and cooperative leadership, the Network develops the motivation and momentum to support the Early College High School model so all Indiana students have the opportunity to recognize and reach their potential as college-bound students.
