Career Cluster Model

The Colorado Career Cluster Model provides a framework for integrated academic and career planning. It provides students with a relevant context to link their school-based learning with the knowledge and skills required to meet their own personal career goals. For more information, please visit http://www.coloradostateplan.com/

A Plan of Study is a coherent, articulated sequence of rigorous academic and career-related courses beginning in the ninth grade and leading to an industry-recognized certificate or licensure, and/or an associate or baccalaureate degree and beyond. It provides a "road map" to a student's career goals. Plans are flexible, allowing students to explore and update a plan of study. A Plan of Study highlights secondary to postsecondary linkages allowing for seamless transition to further education. Below is a general Plan of Study for each LPS CTE program.

Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment college credit is subject to course and teacher approval and completion of all required application steps.

See below for answers to frequently asked questions about this program.

What is Concurrent Enrollment?

Eligible high school students may take college and career or technical courses to earn both high school credit and college credit. Students must receive a C or better to receive college credit.

Concurrent Enrollment creates options for students still in high school. College credits may transfer to other two-or-four year college or university but is not guaranteed. Please check with the accepting institution for credit acceptance.

Tuition is paid by Littleton Public Schools and the College Opportunity Fund if the student receives a C or better. Students are responsible for any textbook or fees associated with the class.

Am I Eligible for Concurrent Enrollment?

High school students in grades 11-12 must demonstrate the academic ability and meet the necessary prerequisites. Students may take designated classes at their high school or attend courses on college campuses including Arapahoe Community College or Metro State University. Students begin building a college transcript while they complete their high school graduation requirements. Students must create an Individualized Career and Academic Plan (ICAP), meet course prerequisite requirements, complete an application for the college, complete a concurrent enrollment agreement form at the district and take a placement test if applicable.
