Welcome to CEC Parker High School
Colorado Early Colleges Parker (CECP) opened its doors in 2014 as a tuition-free, open enrollment public charter high school. CECP 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 career credential at no cost to families.
Colorado Early Colleges Parker provides students in grades 9th-12th the opportunity to begin working on college-level courses as soon as they are college ready. CECP assesses every student who enrolls and meets them where they are academically, no matter the level. CECP 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!

“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!”
CECCR junior, Bella Sparks was interviewed recently by KDVR/Fox 31 about her new charcuterie business. We are inspired to see how her creativity and entrepreneurial spirit developed into a successful small business that brings joy to many.
“My physical health was making it nearly impossible for me to attend classes at school. I thought about homeschooling, but after visiting CEC Inverness with my Mom and learning how I would have the flexibility to create a class schedule to fit in with my physical recovery, I enrolled."
