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

Our lottery drawings for the 2018/2019 school year began in January. Parents/guardians will receive a telephone call and letter when their student’s application is drawn. Lottery drawings are conducted through spring and summer. Applications are drawn by a volunteer parent and Board of Governors member, per Board policy.

Beginning in the 2018/2019 school year, we will offer one section of full day kindergarten as well as continue with four sections of half day kindergarten— morning sessions and afternoon sessions. Parents/guardians whose kindergarten applications are drawn, will receive a telephone call asking their preference for kindergarten—full or half day until all sessions are filled.
