Grades 9 – 12

At Design Lab Early College High School, we believe that high school doesn’t have to be preparation for real life, because it IS real life. Student learning begins with an actual problem to solve and ends with making a difference to a real audience.

Design and making is at the heart of what we do. You’ll connect with partners to design for our school and our community. We offer you the opportunity to take college courses that begin freshman year with robotics courses and end in your senior year, when, if eligible, you can take full-time courses at Cleveland State University, tuition-free.

You will learn academic content, habits of mind and how to develop the skills necessary for success in college and careers. Equipped with a Maker Space, Sound Studio, a green screen and a beautiful creative meeting space, Design Lab Early College High School offers you numerous opportunities to explore and maximize your creativity, talent and ingenuity through thinking, problem-solving and making.
