Colorado Early College Fort Collins Reviews

I loved attending Colorado Early Colleges Fort Collins! The academic experience was phenomenal; having the opportunity to earn my associate's degree for free during high-school was a huge advantage and blessing for me and my family. The diverse classes at both the high-school and college levels were well-taught by amazing professors, and I feel more prepared for my future college plans. However, there is always room for improvement. CECFC does not have any sports teams and is more educationally focused rather than socially. For me and the way that I am wired, its environment suited me well but for could be off-putting for others seeking a regular high-school experience. I think that finding ways to increase school spirit and involvement would benefit CECFC. Overall, though, I am proud to be an alumna of an incredible high-school and would highly recommend Colorado Early Colleges to anyone.

Colorado Early Colleges has put me ahead of everyone else my age by giving me opportunities that regular schools do not give. They set you up for success by giving you the opportunity to obtain an Associates Degree, through the local Community Colleges, at graduation. They have endorsed diplomas that show your job shadowing, volunteer work and great grades as well. I feel 10 steps ahead of where most kids my age will be at graduation!
Colorado Early Colleges is a great school. It's main objective is to help students get their associates when they graduate high school. They immediately put students into college class, but don't worry, they make sure that you are ready for them! One negative thing is that they don't provide sports, but you can go to a different school for the sport you desire. The teachers at my school are the best! They truly love and care about their students. The classes are challenging, but they have tutors on staff for every subject! I have truly enjoyed my school, they provide free college for me and when I graduate I will have an associates in criminal justice and be ahead of the game. I would really school to anyone who is looking for a challenging and great opportunity.
