I love Jackson County Early College! The teachers are absolutely amazing! They are genuinely invested in the students success. The staff do everything they can to improve student interest in, involvement with, and understanding of their own education. The community at JCEC is equally as wonderful, the students are friendly, and each year group is close-knit and active with the school.
