Welcome to JCM Early College High School

  • Welcome to Jackson Central-Merry Early College High School. We are so thrilled that you have decided to go on this journey with us. The experience of a JCM ECH student is very unique; we work hard to prepare our students for success in any post-secondary setting from two- or four-year universities and professional certification programs to the workforce. We strive to meet each student where they are academically and push them to mastery and competency levels that even they didn't think were possible. We have an incredible faculty who have proven, year after year, to be some of the best in their fields, and the amount of support our students receive every day is unprecedented. We are so proud to offer such a comprehensive program to your child and excited to see what the future holds for each of our students.

    Open Door Policy

    Parents, we want you to know that our doors are always open to you and we are always thrilled to receive your feedback. Your participation in your child's academic experience is absolutely vital, and we are happy to facilitate that in any way that we can. If you would like to meet with a teacher on a day that is not set aside for parent-teacher conferences, simply come by or call the office to set up a meeting during that teacher's planning time. Remember, our students' success is our very first priority, and you are a  key player in that success. Let's work together to push our students to mastery and competency.
