Career Enrichment Center & Early College Academy Magnet High School

Career Enrichment Center & Early College Academy Magnet is two separate schools serving grade 9–12 in Learning Zone 3.

Career Enrichment Center

The Career Enrichment Center (CEC) is a magnet school that provides opportunities for advanced, in-depth learning. Students from all Albuquerque high schools can choose unique courses from a variety of career areas, including medicine, computers, engineering, health, languages, business, and CTE courses including vocational classes. CEC’s distinctive programs attract a wide variety of students from all geographic areas and socioeconomic groups in Albuquerque. The blending of strong academic, career, and technical classes enhances the education of all our students.

Early College Academy

The Early College Academy (ECA) is a college-prep magnet high school and sister school to the Career Enrichment Center (CEC) 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 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 an intimate and personalized 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.
