There are many opportunities for Five Star students to get a head start on their college careers. Here is a brief overview of our different programs:

  • International Baccalaureate (IB) and Advanced Placement (AP) Courses: These college-level courses allow students to earn credit toward their future college degrees.

  • ASCENT: A fifth-year program that allows students to take a full year of classes at a community college to earn credit toward their degree. The Five Star District covers tuition. Students are responsible for the payment of transportation, books and campus fees.

  • Concurrent Enrollment and Dual Enrollment: Earn college credit while still in high school, either by taking college classes offered at Five Star high schools, FutureForward campuses or Front Range Community College (concurrent enrollment); or pay a nominal tuition to earn credit from CU Succeed and Metropolitan State.

  • Financial Aid: There are many opportunities to relieve some of the financial burden associated with a college education. These options include federal aid (FAFSA), work study programs, college savings programs and student loans.

  • College Preparation: Counselors and teachers can help students develop the skills and tools they need to be ready to apply for college, choose a college and find academic and social success in college. 

  • Resources for First-Generation College Students: Resources and information for students who are first-generation college students.

  • Resources for Students who are Undocumented: Resources and information for students who are undocumented.
