Where We Work

Aurora

The mountains visible from Aurora, Colorado are often seen as symbols of great possibility, but the college enrollment rate for the district tells a different story – less than 25 percent of high school graduates enroll in a four-year college. We believe this can – and must – change, drastically.

Aurora is College Track’s fifth site, and serves over 200 students from Rangeview High school today. Over the next three years, the site will serve nearly 300 students annually. With the right support, we know that Aurora’s students can reach any academic height and see their dreams become a reality. We’re proud to partner with the Aurora community in this work.
