In partnership with the University of North Carolina at
Charlotte (UNC Charlotte), CMS offers accelerated learning
opportunities that provide students the opportunity to
take college courses while completing their high school
graduation requirements. In addition to earning a high school diploma, students can earn up to two
years of transferable college credit, tuition free. All early college high school courses are Honors, Advanced Placement or college level courses. Given the
rigor of completing both the high school diploma and two
years of college credit, students have an additional year
(i.e., grade 13) to graduate.
Charlotte Engineering Early College (CEEC) is a high school located on the UNC Charlotte campus with a focus on engineering, energy and sustainability. Students attending CEEC will have access to the state-of-the-art facility, EPIC-The Energy Production and
Infrastructure Center, which is part of The William States Lee College of Engineering at UNC Charlotte.
EPIC was formed in response to the need for highly trained engineers, qualified to meet the demands of the
energy industry through traditional and continuing education. EPIC seeks to provide sustainable support
to the energy industry by increasing the capacity and support for applied research. More than 250 regional
energy corporations (including Duke Energy, Siemens, AREVA, Westinghouse and many others) cooperate
with EPIC to lead the expansion of energy engineering studies in EPIC classrooms. EPIC is committed to
developing and implementing energy concentrations based on industry needs.
