Concurrent enrollment courses allow Denver high school students to take college classes while still in high school. This provides students an idea of what college classes are like and saves families money.
We currently partner with Community College of Denver (CCD), CU Succeeds and Metro State to offer more than 40 concurrent enrollment sections on campus at ALHS. Students have the opportunity to continue their postsecondary plans with support from Denver Public Schools through the CareerConnect Youth Apprenticeship program and support through the Denver Scholarship Foundation.
