Welcome to CEC Aurora High School!
Colorado Early Colleges Aurora (CECA) opened its doors in 2017 as a tuition-free, open enrollment public charter high school. CECA provides a personal and supportive atmosphere where students are able to pursue their unique and individual educational and career goals. As an early college high school, our academic program is designed to allow students who complete the curriculum to earn an associate degree, 60+ college credit hours, and/or industry certifications at no cost to families.
Colorado Early Colleges Aurora provides students in grades 9th-12th the opportunity to begin working on college-level courses as soon as they are college ready. We assess every student who enrolls and meet students where they are at, no matter the level. Our students earn a combination of high school and college credits as they pursue a high school diploma and an Associate degree or higher.
All at $0 Cost to Our Families!

News from CEC Aurora
The NEW Colorado Early Colleges Middle School is excited to host local business and community leaders as well as statewide educational and government leaders to celebrate one of CEC’s founders, Ms. Deborah Hendrix.
“My parents emigrated from Mexico before I was born to give their children more opportunities in life. I can never thank them or my community of friends, advisors, and teachers at CEC enough for giving me this great chance to follow my dream of becoming a pilot. I was an apprentice with CareerWise at Frontier Airlines, and choosing CEC made it possible to schedule my classes with my job.”
