21st Century College Readiness Center

CUE’S 21st Century College Readiness Center provides a rich array of after-school learning opportunities and resources to students and families at nine partner schools in Denver. Its primary goals are to increase: academic achievement in math, reading and writing; readiness for postsecondary education; and parents’ engagement in their children’s education.

For 12 hours a week during the school year, students participate in educational programs including:

  • Tutoring and homework assistance in English, math, science and social studies
  • Enrichment classes consisting of hands-on projects and activities focused on the development of 21st century skills
  • College-readiness guidance to help students navigate the pathways into and through college.

The after-school programs in each school are staffed by MSU Denver students who serve as paid tutors, instructional assistants and mentors. In addition, MSU Denver professors develop and teach enrichment classes at various school sites during the academic year.

Students and their families also have the benefit of out-of-school activities, including:

  •  Field trips to the MSU Denver campus (tours, orientations, workshops, athletic events, theatrical performances, presentations by invited speakers) as well as the city’s cultural facilities
  • Summer learning opportunities such as the 9th Grade College Readiness Summer Camp, held on the Auraria campus, and credit-recovery programs offered at five locations throughout the city.
  • Scholarship opportunities at MSU Denver, such as the 21st CCRC Book Scholarship (insert link to scholarships)

Bruce Randolph School (6-12)
