Each student at Chandler Early College is monitored by our Counselor and Program Director who will track the student's progress through a respective school year. CEC is a program designed to help students make the most of the opportunities of both high school and college. Although not all students see post secondary options in their future, below is consideration for those on this path.
Entrance: Students with fewer than 6 high school credits must complete six high school classes in order to be considered for enrollment in college.
- Early College I: In this stage the students will begin with a minimum of three (3) high school classes and will take the Accuplacer Test for college placement.
- Early College II: While still completing high school requirements, students will begin to consider their college classes to participate in concurrent credit opportunities that include the areas of Humanities, Fine Art, or Literacy as electives. Students will also be encouraged to consider the College Success entry course CPD 150 as an introduction to the college class experience.
- Early College III: This is the stage in which students can identify a program of study while continuing both high school and college courses, in addition, to taking or considering courses to meet program course requirements.
- Early College IV: During this final stage students will be finishing their high school requirements while working to graduate and determine their transition to post-secondary opportunities.
