Home of the Spartans! The J.P. Knapp Early College High School is a collaborator with the College of the Albemarle and other community colleges around the state. Our school's work is a part of the Early College Learn and Earn initiative. The early college provides a rigorous, relevant, responsive environment blended with a unique learning environment. The culminating educational experience will provide students with both a North Carolina high school diploma and transferable college credits. Students attend within a four to five year early college high school experience.
