University Schools

University Schools - Pioneers in Education

University Schools is a tuition free K–12 public charter school located in Greeley School District 6 in Greeley, Colorado. The tradition of developing better ways to teach our children is at the heart of University Schools. University Schools has been a leader in education for more than a century.

At University Schools, we believe that children learn best in a safe, nurturing, and supportive environment. Our students enjoy a student-led, teacher-guided educational experience.

At University High School, we focus on creating a student-centered learning program. We prepare our students for success beyond school, as they develop personal and academic plans and portfolios and participate in community service projects. We invite you to take a look around our website to see what we have to offer for your child.

A Message from our Director

Beginning in the 2018/2019 school year, we will offer one full day section of kindergarten with more full day sections planned for the future. We will continue to provide our half day sections as in the past. Applications were drawn according to Board policy and the full day session is full at this time.

We will mail ballots to families on April 3, for the Board of Governors’ election. The ballot, approved by the Board on March 7, will contain a summary of each candidate’s qualifications written by the candidate. There are three open positions (see additional information below).

With the passing of the Mill Levy Override (MLO) in November, University Schools will use the additional funding for the following as submitted to the District prior to the election:

  • Safety and Security
  • Transportation
  • Technology
  • Curriculum Resources
  • Reduced Student Fees

The MLO dollars are disbursed to each school in the District based on enrollment. We will keep you informed regarding our expenditures in the above-mentioned categories.

Parent/Teacher/Student conferences will be held before Spring Break. Thank you for attending. And, as always, please contact me if I can answer any questions. We also welcome any suggestions you might have.

Have a wonderful Spring Break!
