    Concurrent Enrollment

    Westminster Public Schools (WPS) students are encouraged to enroll in college courses while still in high school. Within CTE, there are many courses where students can earn college and high school credit simultaneously:

    • Irrigation Tech I, II:
      • 6 credits earned from Front Range Community College (FRCC) for a full year of coursework and successful passing of the final exam
    • Adobe Photoshop:
      • 3 credits from FRCC
    • Introduction to Multimedia 
      • 3 credits from FRCC

    In addition to courses offered at Westminster High School, WPS pays the tuition for qualified students to take college courses at FRCC, Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University and the Emily Griffith Technical College.  

    ASCENT

    • Students who earn 12 college credits prior to completion of the 12th grade are eligible for ASCENT.
    • This program pays student tuition (full or part-time) for one full year.
    • Students remain enrolled in their high school until the completion of the 13th year.
    • Students receive their diplomas and college credits at the end of the final year.

    If you are a student interested in taking concurrent enrollment or ASCENT, see your counselor or the Future Center for details.
