Welcome, Mighty Cougars! 

The Rio Grande City Consolidated Independent School District Preparatory for Early College is an innovative high school program that allows students to obtain a two-year associates degree from South Texas College while at the same time earning a high school diploma. The Preparatory for Early College High School received Early College designation from the Texas Education Agency. PECHS implemented all the design elements for each required benchmark and met the state's Early College outcomes-based measures. PECHS is proud to announce they also received an A rating and met TEA standards for the 2018-2019 school year. Congratulations Cougars! We will continue to mark our work with excellence.
