Limited Seats Available at Early College of Arvada

                Want to give your student a head start in college and life? At Early College of Arvada, we offer students the unique opportunity to take 60+ college credits – before they graduate high school. Our staff of dedicated teachers, including 5 professors with PhDs, begin preparing students in 6th grade for the college courses they will take beginning in grade 11. These courses are all taught on ECA’s campus, so students take up to 2 full years of college courses (representing $30,000+ in tuition savings) with students their own age, without having to leave ECA’s safe and secure campus. Our small class sizes ensure that all students receive personalized attention from teachers while they enjoy learning at the best school in Colorado.

               How do we accomplish this? ECA is a public charter school, so we charge no admission fees or tuition to our families. We also receive no extra money from the state, so we are able to give our students these exceptional opportunities by developing relationships with the University of Colorado-Denver and Front Range Community College. All college courses are taught with curriculum provided by these two university partners, so you can ensure that your students are receiving the same quality education they would receive at these colleges – all while staying in small classes with students their own age. Executive Director Cordrey stated “Even though our college focus makes ECA stand out from other high schools, we still offer our students a well-rounded, normal high school experience: our students participate in clubs, pep rallies, international trips, cultural activities, PE classes, drama and choir performances, and academic competitions. Planning is already underway for the upcoming school year, so act quickly to save your student a spot before waiting lists form! We teach grades 6-12 and are especially dedicated to serving students who will be first-generation college goers.

Asientos limitados disponibles en Early College of Arvada

        ¿Quieres darle a tu estudiante una ventaja en la universidad y en la vida? En Early College of Arvada, ofrecemos a los estudiantes la oportunidad única de obtener más de 60 créditos universitarios, antes de graduarse de la escuela secundaria. Nuestro personal de maestros dedicados, incluidos 5 profesores con doctorados, comienza a preparar a los estudiantes de 6º grado para los cursos universitarios que tomarán a partir del 11º grado.

   Todos estos cursos se imparten en el campus de la ECA, por lo que los estudiantes cursan hasta 2 años completos de cursos universitarios (que representa $ 30,000 + en ahorros de matrícula) con estudiantes de su misma edad, sin tener que abandonar el campus seguro de ECA. El tamaño reducido de nuestras clases garantiza que todos los estudiantes reciban atención personalizada de los maestros mientras disfrutan aprendiendo en la mejor escuela de Colorado.

¿Cómo logramos esto? ECA es una escuela pública autónoma, por lo que no cobramos cuotas de admisión ni matrícula a nuestras familias. Tampoco recibimos dinero adicional del estado, por lo que podemos brindarles a nuestros estudiantes estas oportunidades excepcionales mediante el desarrollo de relaciones con la Universidad de Colorado-Denver y el Front Range Community College. Todos los cursos universitarios se imparten con el plan de estudios proporcionado por estos dos socios universitarios, para que pueda asegurarse de que sus estudiantes reciban la misma educación de calidad que recibirán en estos colegios, todo al mismo tiempo que asisten a clases pequeñas con estudiantes de su misma edad.

El director ejecutivo Cordrey declaró: “Aunque nuestro enfoque universitario hace que la ECA se distinga de otras escuelas secundarias, aún ofrecemos a nuestros estudiantes una experiencia escolar completa y normal: nuestros estudiantes participan en clubes, reuniones sociales, viajes internacionales, actividades culturales, educación física. Clases, actuaciones de teatro y coro, y concursos académicos “.

  La planificación ya está en marcha para el próximo año escolar, ¡actúe rápidamente para ahorrarle a su estudiante un lugar antes de que se formen listas de espera! Enseñamos los grados 6-12 y estamos especialmente dedicados a servir a los estudiantes que serán estudiantes de primera generación.
Llame a Todd Cordrey, Director Ejecutivo, para programar una visita y ver si la ECA es adecuada para su estudiante.

What Is Early College?

“Early college” means a secondary school that provides only a curriculum that is designed in a manner that requires each student to enroll in and complete secondary and postsecondary courses while enrolled in the four years of high school such that, upon successful completion of the curriculum, the student who successfully completes the curriculum will have completed either the requirements of a high school diploma and an associate’s degree or other postsecondary credential or at least sixty credits toward the completion of a postsecondary credential. The curriculum must be designed to be completed within four years.
