Middle School Immunization News

In order to comply with State of Colorado immunization requirements for school attendance, your child will need to show proof of having received a booster of the Tetanus/Diphtheria/Pertussis (Tdap) vaccine when he/she registers for the upcoming school year. University Schools registration will not be complete until we document your child's immunizations.

Many physicians regularly update children's immunization statuses and your child may be current on the Tdap vaccine. Please contact your physician's office to either update school records or schedule this immunization. You can also obtain Immunizations at the Weld County Department of Public Health and Environment. Call (970) 304.6420 to schedule an appointment.

If your child cannot have the Tdap vaccine for medical reasons, we require a one-time documentation from your physician. If you decline immunizations for personal or religious reasons, you must sign exemption forms each school year. These forms will be available at registration.

Please note: children receive this vaccine after their 11th birthday.

The High School Of Business

The high school Business Department has a great opportunity for your student to receive college credit while in high school. The High School of Business™ nationally recognized program developed through MBAResearch allows students to take six project based courses and receive nine credits at Aims Community College. Also, if a student completes all six classes in the High School of Business program, he/she can receive an elective three credits for Foundations of Business Thought (BA150) at the University of Northern Colorado. Aims concurrent enrollment credit options give three credits for Principles of Business (BUS115), three credits for Principles of Marketing (MAR216), and three credits for Principles of Management (MAN226). Students will take these courses on the University Schools campus and not on the Aims campus which will allow for not rearranging a student’s schedule. BUS115 will transfer to any four year higher education institution. Students can also take two additional elective courses in wealth management and leadership which are available at the freshmen level.

Students will take the six courses in sequence as follows:

  • Freshman or sophomore year - Principles of Business and Business Economics
  • Sophomore or junior year - Principles of Management and Principles of Marketing
  • Junior or senior year - Principles of Finance and Business Strategies

University High School is one of only 84 schools in the nation to offer this advanced program. Research has shown that the most desired major in college is business administration, and students will have the advantage going into a college business major having gained experience in project based learning which develops student’s group planning skills, critical thinking, collaboration, communication skills, decision making, and time management. Students also gain valuable skills that will help them in the workplace.

If you have an interest in participating in this great program, please talk to your guidance counselor to arrange your schedule to take these fantastic project based courses. If you have any questions, please contact JoEll Matthews via e-mail.
