Colorado Legacy Schools



College success begins with high school success and an early introduction to the rigorous coursework students will encounter in college. Students who have the advantage of Advanced Placement (AP) classes are more likely to go to college and graduate from college. Our Colorado Legacy Schools Initiative works to dramatically increase student enrollment and success rates in AP math, science, and English courses at schools across the state. It also encourages them to pursue majors and careers in the rapidly-growing STEM fields.
