UToledo, TPS Partner on New Location for Toledo Early College High School

The University of Toledo and Toledo Public Schools are partnering to renovate Driscoll Center to be the new location for Toledo Early College High School (TECHS).

Join UToledo President Sharon L. Gaber and TPS Superintendent Romules Durant on an early construction tour at 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 11 at the Driscoll Center, located on the corner of West Bancroft Street and University Hills Boulevard.

UToledo and TPS approved in December a long-term lease agreement to move Toledo Early College from its current location on the Scott Park Campus. This will bring students closer to Main Campus and provide more opportunities to experience the college atmosphere.

TECHS is a college preparatory program for students in 7th to 12th grades that focuses on college readiness with curriculum designed to accelerate students into college courses at UToledo. More than half of the high school graduates go on to continue their education at UToledo.

The $3.5 million renovation underway on the two-story building, which is jointly funded by UToledo and TPS, will create 20 classrooms and a dining and multipurpose room with a prep kitchen. The 300-seat auditorium will remain for school assemblies and other large events.

TECHS plans to be in the new location for the 2020-21 academic year.
