Vistas Early College High School is a partnership between Klein ISD and Lone Star - University Park to offer at-risk students an opportunity to complete a high school diploma and earn up to 60 college hours towards an associates degree at no cost to the student or their family.

Vistas ECHS provides a “seamless” pathway from high school to college by allowing students to gradually integrate into college course work through a traditional high school degree plan plus dual enrollment. It is anticipated that the student body will be representative of the district’s demographic distribution with students from across Klein ISD

Application Process - Vistas ECHS Applications will open in January 2022 for Fall 2022 incoming 9th graders. Please check back later for more information.
