CEC News Around Our Schools
We are excited to share that CEC Castle Rock is the recipient of a Colorado Charter School Program expansion grant! This competitive grant award of $900,000 over 2 years will be used for academic programming, technology, furniture and equipment, and staff professional development.
CEC Fort Collins and Douglas County schools were assigned a 'Performance with Distinction' rating for 2021! Schools with this rating fall in the top 25% of Colorado public schools with reportable academic data and have demonstrated strong financial and organizational performance as well.
Statewide results from the Colorado Department of Education for PSAT and SAT testing performed during March-May 2021 showed that our CEC Douglas County School 11th grade students from Castle Rock, Inverness and Parker outperformed their counterparts at both the district and statewide level in their SAT mean score averages.
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.
“I definitely love STEM. My CEC teachers challenged me by explaining things in a way that made it possible for me to do the work I needed to do. I loved my middle school teachers and how helpful they were and I also really liked how many choices I had for elective classes. Moving onto CEC Fort Collins High School has been really great and the InnoLab is awesome!”
“I like the simple fact of the opportunity to go to college – I never thought of college as a possibility for my future. My circumstances in life would never have led me to earning an associate degree but thanks to the support of my teachers and advisors, I did it. CEC gave me the chance to pursue my goal of becoming a firefighter, all I had to do was put the work into it.”
“I did a lot of the same work I had been doing before coming to CEC, but now things feel like they’re more about me and I have a voice in what we do. My classmates and I learned a lot about planning ahead for what we might want to do in life and I think that’s going to help us in high school and college. I get so bummed when a school day is over, I really miss my teachers and friends when I’m not there.”
“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.”
“The College Direct program at CEC has turned out to be a great fit for me. I was a little worried at first that college level courses were going to be really hard and that I wasn’t going to be able to get an A, but my advisors at CEC were confident I could do the work and they were right. I love the variety and the challenges of the courses I’m able to take and I’m really looking forward to graduating high school from CEC with a college degree in my hands!”
“I heard about CEC through a friend at church. After finishing middle school I felt like I hadn’t been challenged, so the idea of going to an early college high school and being able to take college courses for free sounded great for me and my family. My advisors and teachers helped me choose classes, apply for scholarships and really excel. I was even able to play CHSSA girls soccer at Aurora High!”
“We were having a hard time finding ways to add computer science courses to my homeschooling, but being able to enroll part-time at CEC changed all of that. I was super-nervous my first day on-campus and now I’m super-excited to get back and be with my CEC teachers and classmates. My computer classes are challenging and my teachers are helping me explore all of the possibilities that are available in computer science. It’s awesome!”
