Arrowhead Park Early College High School

Las Cruces Public Schools

Arrowhead Park Early College High School (APECHS) focuses on general STEM pathways to prepare students for a seamless transition into Bachelor Degree programs in all areas of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and computer science, and to prepare students with the knowledge and skills required to immediately enter the technical workforce upon graduation. As a freestanding early college high school, APECHS has partnered with Doña Ana Community College (DACC) and New Mexico State University (NMSU). Students not only complete core courses, but also pathway specific courses and electives to build soft-skills, improve test taking, study skills, and provide targeted career readiness activities. APECHS allows students to complete industry certifications in Aerospace, Defense, Healthcare, Advanced Manufacturing, Transportation & Logistics, Creative Media Technology, Drafting Technology, and Computer Technology.
