• Craven Early College (CEC) was created out of a strong partnership between Craven County Schools and Craven Community College. We are a Cooperative Innovative High School under the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. The school is a small non-traditional high school located on the campus of the college in New Bern, NC. The school's small size supports innovative ideas, creative teachers and personalization for your child(ren).

    Students who attend this five-year program will have the opportunity to graduate with a high school diploma and up to two years of college credit toward a bachelor's degree or an associate's degree (at no cost to student) in one of the following pathways: Associate of Arts, Associate of Science and Associate of Engineering.

    The structure of CEC fosters academic acceleration, personalization and connections to workplace knowledge and skills. Extensive support is provided to each student. This school is centered on improving graduation rates and preparing students for life-long learning and entry into high-skill careers.
