Special Programs

As a core element of the Jeffco strategic plan, Jeffco is meeting its mission to expand and promote well-rounded educational experiences through offerings in college coursework, CTE programs, health, music, physical education, STEM, theatre, visual arts, work-based learning and world languages.

Special Programs in Jeffco

Students learn by doing, and special programs offer students the ability to follow their passions, participate in authentic work, and be curious about the world around them. By exploring subjects outside of core coursework, students can gain a new perspective on future academic and career possibilities, learn about the world and more about themselves. 

"Giving students the freedom to define authentic and purposeful goals for their learning, creating opportunities for students to lead that learning, and helping them to refine their work until it meets high standards of quality - the deeper their learning and engagement will be." (Mehta and Fine, 2019)

"Elective courses offer students ... the opportunity to develop important life skills that stick with them throughout their lives."

- Lutz, 2021
