Our Mission
CEC is established to support the families of older home schooled children who value Christian character, and collegiate style academics, in order to prepare them to glorify God through their lives. 

CEC enhances the home-schooled student's curriculum with core and elective studies, activities and sports.

Home schoolers who partner with CEC participate in a supportive community that enables their youth to enroll in rigorous core classes that prepare students for college and earn dual credits for some college-level courses. CEC students also enjoy the social life of outings, prom, school yearbook and other fun with like-minded friends.

Since our start in 2001, we have grown from 40 to 400+ students and our program has expanded to include four foreign languages, drama, Biblical studies, business-related courses and preparation for the CLEP/AP examinations. More than $7 million in scholarships have been granted to our graduates.

Classes meet once a week for 1½–2 hours on Tuesday or Wednesday, August through May, and are taught from a Christian worldview.
