Believe it or not, the elementary years are the best time to start preparing for college. Young students benefit from a college preparatory curriculum that includes not only foundational academic skills in literacy and math but also the skills required to succeed in college such as responsibility, perseverance, communication and critical thinking. Our public K-12 charter schools offer every student the golden opportunity of a tuition-free college preparatory education.

K-12 College Prep Curriculum

Our academic program combines a perfect blend of rigor and personalization and meets Colorado’s state standards. From an early age, we emphasize the skills needed to tackle college-level work—decision-making, time management, critical thinking, and real-world problem-solving. Our teachers know our students well and are able to provide personalized attention and extra time on math and literacy to support every student’s growth.

Extracurriculars for Everyone

We know the path to college is more than just academics. That’s why we enrich each student’s K-12 experience with leadership and self-expression via our extensive art and music offerings, competitive athletics and clubs such as Student Council, Yearbook and Battle of the Books.

College & Career Advising

Our full-time Post-Secondary Advisor offers support for the college entrance exams and the decision-making process, as well as searching for scholarships and completing financial aid forms. We love to take our students on field trips to explore college campuses in the area and we provide access to a variety of job and college information fairs. 

Free College Tuition & Credits

Union Colony Preparatory School is situated across from Aims Community College (ACC), providing a convenient opportunity for all students to earn college credits while still in high school. Additionally, we participate in the ASCENT Program which provides tuition coverage for one additional year at Aims Community College after a student’s senior year. It is possible for hard-working students to earn an associate’s degree (and two years of free college!) from ACC without financial cost. 

The staff at Union Colony work tirelessly to provide access to a college degree for all interested students. If you are interested in a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of a free college preparatory education, get started today by visiting our enrollment page. Enrollment for Fall 2023 is now open.
