The purpose of this quantitative study was to explore the perceptions of college instructors and high school teachers regarding the purpose and benefits of the Early College High School program in North Carolina. College instructors and high school teachers, from all 69 Early College High Schools in North Carolina, were invited to participate in a survey using a model that was previously designed and tested by Dr. Jason Chambers titled North Carolina Early College High School Survey. This instrument, a web based survey, was used to measure perceptions of the purpose and benefits of the Early College High School. One hundred-thirty-two high school and college instructors who have taught Early College High School students completed the study's survey questions. A review of the results included statistically significant differences in the perception of purpose of the Early College High School between High School teachers and College instructors. The results similarly included statistically significant differences in the perception of the benefits of the Early College High School between High School teachers and College instructors. The results for the combined perception of purpose and benefits, were statistically significant among the three geographic regions; Mountain, Coastal plains, and Piedmont.
