The Early College Academy (ECA) is an APS magnet and sister high school of the Career Enrichment Center that focuses on college preparation.  Classes are offered to 200 students in a small school environment.   ECA classes are scheduled in the morning so that students may take a full load of CEC, UNM, or CNM classes in the afternoon.  UNM and CNM classes may apply toward an associate or university degree. ECA’s small-school environment offers students a personalized and rigorous college-readiness learning experience.  We believe in an academic focus, paralleling a college-level curriculum, and we encourage our students to start their post-secondary work while still in high school.

 

Is the ECA right for you? The Early College Academy is a match if you have:

  • An interest in a challenging curriculum
  • A history of successful completion of Language Arts and Mathematics classes
  • A willingness to complete 2-3 hours of nightly study/homework
  • A preference for small class sizes
  • An interest in career exploration (internships, apprenticeships or vocational courses)
  • The drive to complete college coursework while still in high school
  • An interest in the individualization of a smaller school environment
  • A need for personalized college admissions support

 

Interested families can pick up an application packet at the Early College Academy/Career Enrichment Center located at 807 Mountain Road NE.   Applications are also available on the school website at cec.aps.edu.  50 students are accepted at each grade level and grades do fill up.  Apply early.  Completed applications (application, transcript, and placement testing) received before Jan 31st  will be eligible for the Feb 2nd, 2018 lottery.

 

For additional information, please call at 247-3658.
