About Us

Oakland Early College (OEC) is a “hybrid” school combining the best elements of high school and college. OEC students attend school on Oakland Community College’s Orchard Ridge campus, and engage in an exciting college-preparatory curriculum taught by teachers from award-winning West Bloomfield School District. Dual enrollment is a central component of every student's educational experience, with students participating in an integrated sequence of high school and college courses. OEC students graduate with their high school diplomas, innovative educational and professional experiences in a small school environment, and up to 60 transferable college credits towards their undergraduate degree and/or an Associate Degree from Oakland Community College.

OEC is a public early college high school. There is no cost to students or their families for attending Oakland Early College. Tuition, most fees, and most textbook costs are paid for by the school.

OEC students have full access to Oakland Community College’s wide range of student support mechanisms and student activities, and OEC's students are deeply involved in all aspects of campus life, assuming leadership roles in areas including student government, the college honor society, and the fine and performing arts programs. All 160+ college degree pathways at Oakland Community College are available to OEC students.
