• Welcome to Empire Early College


    Empire Early College is a partnership between EPCC and SISD

    Message from our PROUD PRINCIPAL Venessa Betancourt

    I am truly enthusiastic and humbled to work in cooperation with the Empire Early High School Community to ensure that tomorrow's leaders are learning today.  Presently, the Empire is state-recognized and the only high school in the District to have received 7 Star Distinction from the Texas Education Agency two consecutive years in a row with accountability ratings.

    As the leader of the campus, I believe it is our responsibility to eliminate barriers that impede success.  Because adversity will challenge us, never defeat us, the campus offers endless opportunities to ensure scholars are Future Ready.  Scholars are afforded a rigorous curriculum, rich exposure to brain-based teaching with a digital mindset, and leadership stewardship through the vehicle of their extracurricular programs.

    In the Aztec Empire, all scholars matter!
