Students wishing to be considered for admission must sit for the eighth-grade scholarship/entrance exam. It is a requirement for the Class of 2025.
The Eighth Grade Scholarship/Entrance Exam is the basis for awarding CEC Academic Scholarships and also assists with placement.
We offer an additional spring test date for students unable to sit for the exam in the fall, however, those results are only used for placement. They are not used in consideration for scholarships.
It is a requirement that all incoming freshmen sit for either the fall or spring exam. Please click the link below to register for your preferred test date. There is a $45 non-refundable fee to CEC.
