Middle school students will take a day-long field trip to one of three universities in the Denver area. 6th graders will visit Johnson & Wales University; 7th graders will go to Metropolitan State University; and 8th graders will go to UC-Denver. We follow the early college model with a goal of familiarizing our students as early as possible with college.
Students will hear from admissions personnel and college students about the reasons for attending college and experience a touch of college life. This is an invaluable experience for our students to see the goal and not just to hear about it. This trip will be the second in a series of college visits this year for ECA middle schoolers.
Have fun, young scholars! You will be there sooner than you realize.
