    Rockingham Early College High School is a small high school with a diverse population located on the campus of Rockingham Community College in Wentworth, North Carolina.  Our guiding principles are rigor, relevance, relationships, equity, and sustainability.  All students participate in a university-preparation curriculum that meets individual student needs.
      We utilize non-traditional scheduling that promotes meaningful learning as well as student-student, student-teacher, and student-community relationships.  Students are enrolled in both high school and college courses from their first semester.  Students who graduate from our program will earn a high school diploma and also have the opportunity to earn their  Associate's Degree.  We offer our students a small community where they can become global learners.  We think of ourselves as a family; students, teachers, and staff alike.
