Did you know that Northglenn is one of several participating schools in our district with the University of Colorado Pre-Collegiate programs? Did you know that many four-year schools in the area offer a pre-collegiate program for grades 6-12? To learn more information about the program: CU Denver Pre-Collegiate program. * Please know Pre-Collegiate is ONLY accepting applications for 9th grade students.
Northglenn school counselors work with all high school school students to promote a college-going culture. Students can start preparing now for an enriching and challenging plan of study that will continue with them all through high school, and prepare them to enter the college of their choice. Northglenn school counselors help to prepare our students to transition on to higher education with the skills and knowledge they will need to be successful and lifelong learners.

- participate in extra-curricular activities
- have positive feedback in letters of recommendation

CU Denver Scholars Program
Did you miss out on participating in Pre-Collegiate? Do you have a 3.0 GPA or higher? Then consider the CU Denver Scholars Program. The program enrolls students with a 3.0 GPA or higher who are in their junior year of high school. The students will attend 2-3 sessions to learn about the college process in the summer after their junior year. Then students will take actual college courses on the CU Denver Campus during their senior year of high school. The classes students choose will need to be after the Northglenn classes end. These applications will be available in April. Please check out this website for more information: CU-Denver Scholars.
Upcoming College Visits:
Many colleges and universities schedule times to come to Northglenn High School and speak with our students about life on their campus. Any student can sign up to attend one of these presentations. Students must sign up in their Naviance account only.
