University Schools - Pioneers in Education

University Schools is a 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 Parents and Students of University Schools,

We will also have Lifetouch here during the registration days. They will be taking pictures of students for the purpose of providing a student ID card to each student as well as for the purpose of taking school pictures for purchase.

  • High: August 20, 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

We schedule these classroom visitations primarily for you and your student to visit the school and drop off supplies.

The first day of school is August 21. View our 2014-2015 school year calendar on our Calendar Page.

Save the date for our back to school nights!

  • For kindergarten through second grade families: September 3, 5:30 6:30 p.m.

Parents will meet in their child’s classroom to meet each teacher and learn more about our school.

I look forward to the school year ahead, and my wish to our students is a wonderful experience at University Schools.  We invite all of our parents to be partners in educating your children, and we want you to know you are such an important part of University. My door is always open if you have questions, concerns, or suggestions to improve our school. You can reach me at (970) 506-7001. Thank you for choosing University Schools.
