Welcome to the Continuing Education Center


The CEC is an independent study-based - and Minnesota Department of Education approved - Alternative Learning Center. Offering students ages 16 through 21 the opportunity to complete the necessary graduation requirements to earn their high school diploma, the CEC’s independent study model combines a required amount of seat time attendance and teacher instruction hours with a required amount of academic completion or performance. Along with individualized and small group instruction, we incorporate work experience and On the Job Training, Career and College Exploration, and much more. Read more.

The ultimate goal of the CEC is to give students the opportunity to earn their diploma, become lifelong learners, and to become committed, productive members of their community and society.

News at the CEC

Last week, the CEC students took a trip to CLC. The students got to see multiple programs in action and participated in some great discussions. These trips are vital to encouraging the Enroll and Employ aspects of the CEC's 3 E's focus this year. They are hoping to head south to SCTCC to compare and contrast the two campuses and all they have to offer. Students will also get the opportunity in the coming weeks to start their college applications.
