Welcome to College Track Denver

get directions

Colorado is ranked one of the best economies in the U.S., yet less than half of students in the city are earning the higher education necessary to earn their seat at the table.

Denver boasts some of the state’s largest and fastest growing industries–from aerospace to finance to energy and healthcare. By 2020, nearly 70% of all jobs in these sectors, and many others, will require a college degree. With so many young people moving to the area to take part in the city’s thriving workforce, there’s even greater need to prepare its residents to compete in this lucrative economy.

Following our success in Aurora, College Track partnered with Denver Public Schools to open its doors on the Abraham Lincoln High School campus in 2016. This year, the center will move to a brand new facility and prepare to launch its first class of students to college.

A View Inside…

On the first Monday of every month, the entire College Track Denver community heads to our neighborhood church for “Family Career Night,” an event designed for our students and their families to learn more about different career opportunities and how to pursue careers in fields they’re passionate about. Each month features new professionals from a variety of Denver-based companies and organizations who share their own professional trajectories through a networking hour and interactive panel focused on what we call The Four P’s: Passion, Purpose, Power, and Possibility.

Scholar Spotlight: Moudji, Kunsmiller Creative Arts Academy

I have always been creative, however I was unsure of how to turn my creativity into college readiness. I attend an arts high school and participate in dance classes and theater productions outside of school. Performing Arts is my passion and College Track has helped me realize that I can make it a career, by giving me a platform to further explore my dreams.

College Track makes it easy for me to connect to opportunities that will allow me to reach my goals. I love the open communication I receive from staff and how the community feels like family. I am already thinking about attending The American Musical and Dramatic Academy in Los Angeles. I know that with the encouragement of College Track, my fantasy of performing on stage professionally will become a reality.

My sister, who is also in the program, and I will become the first in our family to earn bachelor’s degrees. I am confident that College Track will help me to define my future goals and prepare for college and beyond.
