Early College Academy

Albuquerque Public Schools

The Early College Academy (ECA) is a freestanding, college-prep magnet high school and is the sister school to the Career Enrichment Center (CEC) that focuses on early college experiences.
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.
