The ribbon was officially cut on the new West 20thStreet Campus, which now houses the Greeley-Evans Alternative Program and the new College and Career Prep program.

Students and staff attended the event from the two programs, District 6 officials, Board of Education members, members of the Greeley Chamber of Commerce and many community members. Both these programs are geared for older students who may be short on high school credits, but who are motivated to get their high school diploma or a GED

These programs also help fulfill the Innovation2020 initiative to ensure all students graduate with an individual plan to enter a career or college.

“We believe every, single student can and should graduate from high school, and these two programs are helping make that commitment a reality,” says Dr. Deirdre Pilch, superintendent of schools.

In addition to helping students obtain a high school diploma or GED, the College and Career Prep program is working with Aims Community College on providing opportunities for students to take classes in many certificate programs.
