Colorado Early Colleges Launches State’s First Early College High School Satellite Offices, Expanding Footprint to Provide Students Access to Free College Degrees


Westminster office now open and Highlands Ranch opening soon to prepare for 2018-2019 enrollment

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Colorado Early Colleges, the state's leading early college high school network, is opening Colorado's first early college satellite offices. The new Westminster office (open now) and Highlands Ranch office (opening later this spring) will host advising sessions and informational meetings for students who enroll with Colorado Early Colleges Fort Collins (CECFC) and Colorado Early Colleges Parker (CECP.) 

"Colorado Early Colleges started in Colorado Springs, expanded into Fort Collins, Parker and recently Aurora. As we have continued to grow and expand, we have seen a need to provide more accessible advising to students outside our school areas," said Sandi Brown, Colorado Early Colleges Executive Administrator. "In addition to the opportunity to earn a free college degree while in High School, our schools also provide 9th - 12th-grade students with individualized academic and career advising every semester, every year they attend the school. These new satellite offices give current and new students a convenient place to meet with their advisor to ensure they are on the right path for their own success."

Colorado Early Colleges was founded in 2007 by the Honorable and award-winning Keith King who, during his work as a senator, carried over 70 bills that have impacted K-12 and higher education. Colorado Early Colleges has four open-enrollment, public, charter early college high schools and one middle school across the state. CECFC, founded in 2012, has drawn over 110 students from Westminster and surrounding Denver-areas to its school because of its unique school model and collaborative way that advisors work with all students to earn their Associate Degree and/or certification while in high school. 

Students from all across Colorado are eligible to attend Colorado Early Colleges. The high school pays for tuition, fees and books when its students take courses with its partner colleges including Front Range, Red Rocks and Arapahoe Community Colleges, Metropolitan State University and many others. The student’s location will determine which satellite office and community college campus that students work with. 

Satellite offices will host advising sessions, informational and other administrative meetings. CECFC students in Westminster, Northglenn, Thornton, Brighton, Broomfield, Boulder, Longmont, Mead, Fort Lupton and other parts of north Denver will attend the Westminster satellite office and CECP students living in Highlands Ranch, Littleton, Centennial, Castle Rock, and other parts of south Denver will attend the Highlands Ranch satellite office.

Informational meetings are scheduled for the Westminster office on April 19 and May 3. Highlands Ranch informational meetings are scheduled for April 18, April 24 and May 2 at Arapahoe Community College. 

Interested parents/students outside the current areas served by Colorado Early Colleges can contact the schools to discuss individual opportunities. 

Colorado Early Colleges mission is to ensure that each student, regardless of background or skill level, will have the opportunity to pursue a growth mindset that will allow them to achieve mastery and to demonstrate that they can succeed in school, in college, and in their chosen career. No exceptions. No excuses. 

"Colorado Early Colleges is an open-enrollment charter high school for any student who wants support finding their own career path and who wants to earn their college degree, free," said Brown.
