STRIVE Prep, a community of public charter schools in Denver, CO, is where every student is learning to change the world. We believe a high-quality public education should be well within the grasp of students in every neighborhood of Denver and beyond, but we also know that for many students, that opportunity is out of reach. That's why we extend deep into the communities we serve to become more accessible to all families who choose STRIVE Prep. We meet students exactly where they are, challenging, encouraging, and supporting every child with the tools and resources needed to prepare for college and career.
As a network comprised of 11 schools, our programmatic focus is on providing a K-12 education to our nearly 3,800 students. In addition, we offer a number of programs to enhance our students' education, engage our families, and differentiate our network, such as athletic programs, high-quality special education, advocacy and family engagement, a Teacher Residency Program, and more.
