A Premier Charter School

Venture Prep is a free, public high school devoted to providing students with the necessary skills and support to graduate from high school and move on to succeed in college and their chosen careers. 

We serve  students in grades 9 through 12 with our unique blend of intensive skill-building and hands-on, project-based learning.  Our small class sizes enable us to provide individualized support and college and career planning for each student.  We also offer AP classes, career exploration, and after-school athletics and other activities.

At this time we are accepting applications from students entering 9th through 12th grades in the 2015-16 school year. Learn more at an Open House:

  • Tuesday, June 9, 6 to 7 pm
  • Tuesday, August 11, 6 to 7 pm
Open Houses take place at 2540 Holly Street, Denver CO.  Please call our office for more information or to RSVP at 303-893-0805.
