The Dallas Independent School District (DISD), Dallas College Cedar Valley Campus, and the AT&T Foundation are partners in the early college high school program. 
    Cedar Valley Campus is the higher education partner that serves Gilliam Collegiate Academy by providing the college courses and a variety of resources to students. 
    In 2009, the AT&T Foundation provided a $1 million gift to establish a scholarship fund for students who transfer from early college highschools to UNT Dallas upon graduation from Gilliam.
