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

I hope you had a wonderful Spring Break!

Our Board of Governors election will begin on April 3 with ballots being mailed that day. The ballot will have an envelope for you to mail in your ballot or you may drop your ballot off in the Main building office. You may notice that your ballot is numbered. It is not to identify voters, but to assure that only original ballots are submitted. There are three open positions. All ballots must be received at University by April 17 at 4:00 p.m. Thank you for taking the time to vote.

The University of Northern Colorado's Research Lab will be sending out a Parent Survey the first part of May. The results of the survey help us to address concerns and set goals for improvement. Your feedback is very important to us.

The 2018/2019 budget process will begin in April and be finalized when the Colorado Legislature finalizes its appropriation for K-12 education. Our budget committee will make a recommendation to the Board of Governors based on funding from the State.

Please let me know if I can answer any questions you may have or provide additional information.

Thank you for your support of University Schools! 

REMINDER: The Board of Governors’ election will be April 17, 2018. Three positions will be elected. Three current members are eligible for reelection. The nine Board Members who are not the Faculty/Staff Representative shall be elected by a vote of the majority or plurality of the parents or guardians of students attending University Schools. Only one parent or guardian of the same child may serve on the Board at the same time.
