About San Juan Early College High School

San Juan College High School (SJCHS) is a free, public high school on the campus of San Juan College. The school opened in the Fall of 2016 with 80 students. Operating under the direction of Farmington Municipal Schools, SJCHS currently serves 285 students who reside in San Juan County. 

Students who attend SJCHS will graduate with a New Mexico High School Diploma of Excellence, as well as an associate degree, certification, or transferable college credit from San Juan College. Students are able to pursue any degree program at San Juan College.

Exhibiting a sincere interest in academics, SJCHS students must be willing to work hard to meet the demanding expectations of the program. Students must also be prepared to integrate into a university setting/adult environment. Taking part in service hours through volunteering is also an expectation of SJCHS students. This element, in conjunction with academics, supports the SJCHS vision of community support and a well-rounded high school experience.
