Polk County Early College

Columbus, NC

The Polk County Early College is a program for academically gifted students at Polk County High School. Courses lead to college credit or an associate’s degree through the local community college. This project relocates the facility from downtown Columbus to a parcel adjacent to the high school, so that students may more easily take advantage of after-school activities at the high school. The project scope includes renovation of an existing 3600 sf building and an addition of 5408 sf. Primary components include classrooms, open computer work areas, multi-purpose rooms, and staff and support spaces.
