Barbara Jordan Early College Prep helps students achieve their full potential with a rich and inspiring educational program inspired by the leadership qualities of its namesake. Built in 1993, the school was named after political leader Barbara Jordan. Each year in February, the school community along with the LBJ School of Public Affairs, the Barbara Jordan Foundation and the University of Texas at Austin hold a program to commemorate the many accomplishments and achievements of Ms. Jordan. The educational program is aligned with the Early College High School initiative that supports preparation for college level courses beginning in 9th grade.
