Mission Statement

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 they can succeed in school, in college, and in their chosen career.
No exceptions. No excuses.



Colorado Early Colleges Inverness (CECI) is a tuition-free charter high school that provides its students an opportunity to take college classes and earn a degree.

CECI provides students in 9th-12th grades the opportunity to start working on college-level courses as soon as they are college ready.  CECI students can earn a combination of high school and college credits as they pursue a high school diploma and an Associate degree or higher-- all at no cost. CECI pays for tuition, fees, and textbooks.

High school and community college courses (through Arapahoe Community College) are offered at the CEC Inverness high school campus.  We also offer a College Direct option that allows students to take all of their classes directly on the campus of one of our community college partners. All courses taken must satisfy degree requirements. Students may pursue an Associate of Applied Science, Certifications, an Associate of Arts, an Associate of Science, or a four-year degree.

Colorado Early Colleges Inverness is an open-enrollment public, charter high school.
