Welcome to CEC Castle Rock!

Colorado Early Colleges Castle Rock (CECCR) opened its doors in 2020 as a tuition-free, open enrollment public charter high school. As a small high school, CECCR 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, CECCR’s academic program is designed to allow students who complete the curriculum to earn an associate degree, 60+ college credit hours, and/or career credential at no cost to families.

Colorado Early Colleges Castle Rock provides students in grades 9th-12th the opportunity to begin working on college-level courses as soon as they are college ready. CECCR assesses every student who enrolls and meets them where they are academically, no matter the level. CECCR 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!
