CSEC is an awesome program that allows me to earn college credit for free while still in high school. The advisors are great and really help along the way. It's kind of strange making big decisions about college when I'm still in high school, but my advisor is very knowledgable and makes it a lot less scary. The admissions process was simple and I have made a few good friends. I would recommend CSEC to anyone who is looking to get more out of their high school years!

CSEC is awesome!!! This school is so beneficial to students! It prepares them for college, assists them in college enrollment, and the greatest part, college education for FREE!!! The advisors and teachers are dedicated to helping students achieve their goals and be college educated. I'm about to graduate highschool not only with my diploma, but an associate's degree too. Colorado Springs Early Colleges gives young adults a head start to furthering their education. Although their building and hallways are small for the amount of students, teachers are still able to gift students with one on one attention. Thanks to CSEC, I am on my way to starting at a 4-year university halfway to my Bachelors degree. Less debt to weigh down my shoulders and more bucks to put in my pocket.
It is a great school, I able to take college classes while I am in high school. Right now, I am finishing my last semester before I graduate with my high school diploma and associate degree. The building is quite small for the students, but it is a relatively new school and every it is expanding, so the students that are coming in. The teachers are friendly; however, the teacher does change constantly because some of the teachers are part-timers from the colleges/ university's campus. The part-time teachers are very convenient when you don't have a way of transportation to go to the actual campus. Also, every year the school adds classes more (high school and college), most of the books that you will need for your class(es) are available. I have talked every advisor, new and old, they are all very friendly. If my assigned advisor is not available, I can always go to another advisor and they are always happy to help me. While they pass by they take a few moments to ask how you are.
