Dear DPS Community,
Every October, DPS celebrates Career and College Success Month, as part of our efforts to ensure every student graduates with the skills and tools they need to be successful in any path they choose.
This month, we’ve supported students by:
- Hosting Free College Application Days with the state of Colorado.
- Helping students apply to Historically Black Colleges and Universities for free through a special partnership with the Common Black College Application.
- Collaborating with the Denver Scholarship Foundation to hold Financial Aid workshops to help students apply for Federal Student Aid.
Thanks to these and other efforts, DPS won the Partner of the Year “Award of Excellence” at the National College Attainment Network’s 2021 conference. This award recognizes our collaborative efforts with the Denver Scholarship Foundation to ensure that DPS students get the support they need to begin and complete a two- or four-year degree.
I’m excited about the many ways we help our students plan for their futures while getting a head start on paths toward meaningful careers and post-secondary education. Watch this video to learn more about these available opportunities and visit our College And Career website.
