    What is an early college?

    academic spotlight

    At CEC, students can begin working on their postsecondary credential path as soon as they are academically ready, which can be as early as the fall semester of a student’s 9th grade year. During a student’s four years at a CEC high school, motivated students can, and do, graduate with more than one associate degree, plus certifications, and in some cases a bachelor’s degree. All tuition-free!
