Compton Early College (CEC) in partnership with Compton College is in its fifth year of operation. We are still celebrating our inaugural graduating class of 2019 and looking forward to building on their legacy. Established in 2015 as a senior high school, CEC has incorporated a middle school and spans from grade 6-12.  An early college's purpose is to provide students with an opportunity to earn an AA (Associates of Arts Degree) and/or IGETC (Intersegmental General Eduction Transfer Certificate) while also earning their high school diploma.

Congratulations to Team Vision! They won 2nd Place in Los Angeles out of 23 teams in the STEM on the Sidelines “Mini Football Launcher” Competition, held at Dignity Health Sports Park (formerly StubHub Center). The team designed, built, and programmed a device using Raspberry Pi, Arduino Sandbox Tech Kit, breadboard, and motors that would launch a mini football for two tasks: accuracy and maximum distance toward a target.

Mentored and guided by Larry Hood, AP Computer Science teacher, the team evolved from a group of students to a team of engineers, overcoming obstacles to complete the challenge effectively. “We had a hard time at first,” a team member shared, “But we learned to work as a team and had great support.” All team members are part of the Class of 2021.

Congratulations to  Emely, Edgar, Victor, and Alexandra!

Inside California Education, a KVIE public television series that explores challenges, issues, and stories in public education, visited Compton Early College and aired this report in May 2019.
