Cobequid Educational Centre (CEC) is a high school located in Truro, Nova Scotia.

CEC serves not only the town of Truro, but rural areas in Central and West Colchester County. The school is the largest high school in the province of Nova Scotia with approximately 1700+ students and 95 teaching staff.


CEC opened in September 1970 as an experiment in amalgamating rural high schools in Nova Scotia. As well as serving as a replacement for the former Truro Senior High School, (which was also known by an earlier name, the Colchester Academy), CEC also replaced the former Central Colchester High School and West Colchester High School, which became junior high schools (grades five to nine for the newly renamed West Colchester Junior High School and grades six to nine for the newly renamed Central Colchester Junior High School). When CEC opened, it was operated by the Colchester-East Hants Amalgamated School Board. As a result of the amalgamation of school boards in Nova Scotia, CEC is now operated by the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board.
