Through DPS’ Concurrent Enrollment program, EGHS encourages students to become college students WHILE finishing their high school graduation requirements! This program allows students to enroll in classes/programs of their choice, through partnering schools such as Community College of Denver and Emily Griffith Technical College, in order to:
- Gain exposure to higher education (rigor, schedule, homework, expectations, etc.)
- To work on a certificate or trade that will provide students better employment opportunities
- Complete high school graduation requirements while incurring college credit
- To become college ‘ready’ through Developmental Education courses
- To take college courses for minimal cost to the student **
**DPS will pay for these courses as long as the student completes the course(s) and earns a C or higher grade. Please note that students may be required to repay the cost of tuition to their school if they do not pass or withdraw from the class in a timely manner. **Students are responsible for the cost of books, fees, and transportation to these programs (inquire about assistance for these costs with your counselor)

Through the DPS cares program, DPS employees volunteer to work with students one hour a week. Because EGHS is located in the same building as the DPS central offices, professionals in many fields are available to tutor students. If you are a student and would like to work with a tutor, please see Pablo Joucovsky (Dean of Culture) in room 315
