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

Dear University Schools Families and Friends: 

I hope you had a wonderful Spring Break.

There were only two nominations for three open positions for the Board of Governors election. The two nominations were certified by the Board at the March 1 meeting. Per section 3.11 of the by-laws, the Board will appoint one member. Therefore, there will be no need to have an election.

The two new Board members are:

  • Michael Vaardahl – second term
  • Tina Whitcomb – first term

The University of Northern Colorado’s Research Lab will be sending out a Parent Survey via email the first week of May. Your feedback is important to us and is used to help us with continuous improvement. We appreciate your time in completing the survey.

Our school’s budget committee made up of teachers, administrators, a Board member, the school’s business manager and a parent representative of the School Accountability Committee will begin planning for the 2017/2018 school year. We will prepare the budget recommendation based on the Colorado Legislature’s appropriations. The proposal will be presented to the Board of Governors for final approval.

Please contact me if I can answer any questions you may have. I wish you and your family a wonderful spring!

Dr. Sherry Gerner

Director of Schools
