Early College Alliance students are ranked sixth out of more than 800 high schools on Michigan Merit Exam math and reading test scores.
The rankings for the program at Eastern Michigan University are from the website schooldigger.com, which last year ranked the ECA 41st in the state.
Washtenaw Educational Options Consortium Director Dave Dugger says the jump was due to a focus on improving literacy education, and spending one day a week understanding and practicing writing for the ACT.
High schoolers enrolled in the ECA can graduate with up to 60 college credits from Eastern Michigan University.
