Wake Early College of Health and Sciences High School (more commonly known as Wake Early College or WECHS) is a small high school program (grades 9–13, with up to one year of post-secondary education) located on two Wake Tech sites: the Health Sciences Campus and the North Campus, both in Raleigh, North Carolina. The school provides five years of education in which students can receive a high school diploma, and up to an Associate of Arts, Science, or Applied Sciences degree. The school has an enrollment of roughly 265 students as of the 2011–2012 school year. Although it is a public magnet high school under the Wake County Public School System, it serves no base population and also functions as a part of Wake Tech.

This school is one of four early college high schools in Wake County. The others are Wake STEM Early College High School, Wake Young Men's Leadership Academy, and Wake Young Women's Leadership Academy (the latter two schools also serve middle school students).

The school posted the eighth highest average SAT score in the Raleigh Durham area: 1650, with 83.3% of students taking the test.[1]
