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 Schools, 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 are enjoying summer, and the beautiful Colorado weather that we have most days!

By mid-July, you will receive a registration packet for the 2019–2020 school year. We continue to improve the registration process so that your time is used as efficiently as possible. If you have not received your packet by July 20, or you need to register on a day different from your assigned day, please call 506-7000.

Because we are using our Mil Levy Override dollars according to our submitted plan, registration fees will be at the 2018/2019 rate and most classroom supplies will be provided. There are a few items, as listed in the registration packet, that we are asking families to purchase.

Registration, K-12, will take place in the Main building, and Lifetouch Photography will take student pictures during registration for student IDs.

We will also host our “Back to School” classroom visitations in their respective buildings:

  • Elementary: Tuesday, August 13 from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m.
  • Middle School: Tuesday, August 13 from 4:15 to 5:45 p.m.
  • High School: Wednesday, August 14 from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m.

The first day of school is Thursday, August 15. Please note, there is a calendar for the 2019–2020 school year on our website.

Thank you for your support of University Schools. We have an outstanding staff working with our students and families every day.
