School History and Academic Highlights
Wilson Early College Academy was established August 5, 2009 and enrolled 50 students. Today, the school has roughly 270 students attend. WECA is located on the campus of Wilson Community College in Building J. The vision for the school was to create a high school that gave early access to college to students who might not have the opportunity after high school. Our mission is to inspire, empower, and encourage every student, every day. We call that Winning The Day, which is our motto. Students and teachers Win The Day by 'Keeping It FRESH'.
WECA has had a history of great academic success. We have been an A school since the state began assigning schools performance grades. We have a cohort graduation rate of 98%. More than 70% of our students graduate with both a high school diploma and an associates degree. The average ACT score for our students is a 21. We have exceeded expected growth on state assessments for the last five years. WECA offers a rigorous curriculum with built in support from teachers, counselors, and administration. WECA values high expectations, collaboration, and intervention and promotes student responsibility for learning.
