A Message from the Principal

Hello,

I would like to welcome you to the Explorative Pathways for Innovative Careers "EPIC" Campus website. Thank you for your interest in this exciting new endeavor for LPS students.

In April 2022 we began construction on two buildings; 190 and 200 East Littleton Blvd. These buildings, which were previously home to an auto repair shop, a COVID testing clinic, and storage will be transformed into an incredible learning facility that will open to students in August 2023. Students will have the opportunity to attend the EPIC Campus for a portion of their schedule. They will still take classes at their home high school and earn a diploma from their home high school. Littleton Public Schools will provide transportation so students can get to and from the Explorative Pathways for Innovative Careers Campus.

I am so excited about this adventure because the Explorative Pathways for Innovative Careers "EPIC" Campus is an opportunity for students to learn more about careers related to one of our six pathways. Students will learn from passionate instructors who are experts in their craft. Students will be encouraged to try new ways of learning and go in-depth into various topics. We will offer content credit, concurrent enrollment, industry certifications, and work-based learning. Students will come to the EPIC Campus for a variety of reasons; some with plans to gain experience to prepare for an apprenticeship while other students will plan to go to college. We will have strong industry partnerships and welcome feedback and ideas from the community. The EPIC Campus will offer something for everyone!

I encourage ninth or tenth grade students to plan their academic schedule with the EPIC Campus in mind. If students are curious about Aerospace, Business, Computer Science, Construction Trades, Health Sciences, and/or Natural Resources, they should consider taking a class in that subject area at their home high school, then enrolling in a course at the EPIC Campus. This enrollment process for classes at the EPIC Campus will begin in February 2023. Students and parents will hear much more information related to these classes in the fall of 2022.

August 2023 seems like a long way away, but in reality, it will be here before we know it. Planning for the Explorative Pathways for Innovative Careers "EPIC" Campus is moving full speed ahead. With every meeting, conversation, and tour we get a better understanding of what this facility will look like and how it will benefit our students, parents, and community. Please check this website often as this will be the main communication page. Finally, I encourage you to contact me with questions, comments, and feedback.

Best regards,
Travis Amonson
Principal

Naming Process

On February 10, 2022, the Naming Committee proposed two names to the LPS Board of Education. The two proposals were Career Exploration Campus "CEC" and Explorative Pathways for Innovative Careers "EPIC Campus".

On February 24, 2022, the LPS Board of Education had a great discussion about the two proposed names. All board members stated that they liked both options and would support either one. Ultimately, a motion was made and approved to name the facility Explorative Pathways for Innovative Careers -EPIC Campus.

We are grateful for the Board's decision and look forward to creating EPIC experiences for students, staff, and community members!
