I honestly think that this was the best high school that I could have ever went to. I would have never thought that this was a school that I would want to be in, until the first year I was there! The teachers there are the greatest, they take their time to make sure that you are getting the information that you need, and they work one on one with students that needed a little bit more help. It also helped me because my class size was small, I didn't have to worry about twenty to thirty students in one class. I had 15 students in my class which meant that we had more chances to ask questions and get help.

CEC has challenged my work ethic along with the extracurricular endeavors I have involved myself in over the years. Entering as a freshman, I was never an academically oriented person. However, the rigorous and engaging academia paired with personalized attention from administration and faculty has taught me the value and importance of education and doing well in school. Extracurricular leadership is valuable when preparing for higher education, and CEC’s close knit community and inclusive environment allows students to become leaders if they desire to enhance their leaderships skills. Exiting CEC, I will not only be entering as a freshman at UNC-Chapel Hill, but will also be joining their honors college, Honors Carolina. Other schools I have been admitted to are Amherst, Swarthmore, New York University, and NC State. I believe that the rigorous approach to academics along with extracurricular opportunities CEC offers are a great part to my success in the college application process.
I believe my experience at Craven Early College to be on of my favorite educational experiences. Academically, CEC is a challenging experience, but it has proven to be beyond valuable. CEC's partnership with Craven Community College only positively adds to the educational experience because students simultaneously receive a high school and college education which makes the transition from a high school to college student a smooth one. The teachers at CEC are truly committed to students' success and always available to answer questions and further students' comprehension of subject matter. Small class sizes provide an outstanding student-teacher interaction as teachers have the time to engage with students and help them achieve success. I am honored to be a Super Senior at Craven Early College, and I have enjoyed my experience immensely.
