College Success

College Placement

DSST Public Schools will prepare all graduates to continue their education at a four-year college or university. Students, parents and DSST staff are involved in the process of preparing to meet that goal from freshman through senior year. DSST graduation requirements exceed the Colorado Minimum Academic Preparation standards for entrance to four-year schools.

In addition to four years of rigorous academic curriculum, the schools engage students in the exploration of college options through the advisory College Success curriculum and College Planning Seminar classes at all grade levels, culminating in a required Senior College Seminar class in senior year to support students as they apply for college admission and financial aid.  Students participate in required college field trips to Colorado college campuses at all grade levels.  All college planning curriculum, activities, and support of students applying to colleges and universities and for financial aid is aligned with the National Association of College Admission Counselors (NACAC) Best Practices.
