Principal's Message

Welcome to Compton Early College 6-12! For those returning, welcome home, for those new to the Early College Family…we’re happy you’re finally here! When I arrived at CEC I was greeted by extraordinarily talented students and colleagues, who are committed to accomplishing exciting and meaningful things together. CEC is blessed to be located on what has been historically known as the Willowbrook community. As we transition, the students, parents, and staff of Compton Early College 6-12 will continue to reach even greater heights than they have in previous years.

While the Middle School prepares students to excel in high school, the High School prepares students for college and beyond. Compton Early College continues to offer a complete Honors/AP and college prep program that has a history of providing students with the necessary education to attend our nation’s finest educational institutions. As partners in the educational process, parents and guardians provide the crucial encouragement, monitoring, and support to our children that are vital to their success.

CEC has a partnership with Compton Community College, where students take college classes during their regular school day and earn both UC/CSU transferable college units while meeting their high school graduation credit requirements, with the intent of also earning their IGETC certification or Associate of Arts degree.

CEC staffs role is to be homework monitors, test motivators, and life skill building teachers. These attributes will propel students to become college bound students, which is the CEC ultimate goal.

Parents, we appreciate you and your support, as your role cannot be underestimated nor replicated by any institution. Your son/daughter is a part of this incredible heritage by attending CEC. I look forward to seeing you and I thank you for enrolling your students at CEC, Home of the Rising Phoenix!
