The Purpose and Heartbeat of Youngstown Rayen Early College

The Youngstown Rayen Early College program is an academic advancement program  that brings to life the idea that intellectual challenge and academic rigor, along with the opportunity to save time and tuition dollars are a powerful way to motivate students to work hard and succeed in a supportive environment. This is accomplished in a design where scholars are able to complete a minimum of 30 college semester hours or a maximum of 60 college semester hours which can result in a scholar simultaneously earning a high school diploma and AA degree upon high school graduation.

Mission Statement

To prepare and develop college and career ready students in a rigorous, yet supportive environment that embraces acceleration, increases academic skills and personal development, and promotes college enrollment and degree completion in order to become impactful citizens of any community.
