Empowering each other to REALIZE OUR POTENTIAL, pursue our passions, and positively impact our communities.
Futures Academy serves students ages 17 to 21, who have too few credits to receive a traditional high school diploma, but are interested in furthering their education and pursuing post-secondary opportunities.
Through a partnership with Colorado Youth for a Change and Aurora Public Schools, Futures Academy provides students with the resources, guidance, and academic instruction that allow them to earn college credits (up to an associate’s degree), technical certifications, a GED, or a combination of the three.
Futures Academy combines a competency-based approach to teaching and learning with targeted case management to help students overcome barriers to academic and personal success in a safe and supportive learning community that respects and values the strengths and experiences of each student.
"Every student can learn. Just not on the same day or in the same way." – George Evans
