Taking high school, a dash of higher education, and a focus on career and technical education, the Legacy Campus was born. 

Douglas County School District’s Legacy Campus is a collaborative campus uniting high school and higher education for a unique approach to teaching workforce readiness. 

Legacy Campus opened on Aug. 2, with a ribbon cutting ceremony. The ceremony was attended by leaders from many of the organizations involved, while several leaders had the chance to speak, celebrating the new campus. 

Arapahoe Community College partnered with DCSD to offer concurrent enrollment programs for high school students, as well as adult career and technical pathways. In addition to ACC, DCSD partnered with University of Colorado, CU Denver, Denver University, Metro State University and the University of Colorado at Denver to provide concurrent enrollment programs. 

“We spent the last year building partnerships and programs,” said Rex Corr, Director of the DCSD Legacy Campus. “We’re thrilled to have three post secondary institutions operating on this campus and to offer outstanding college and university programming. These schools represent tremendous opportunities for our students’ futures.”

At the Legacy Campus, ACC will offer both a EMT Certificate program, as well as a Robotics and Automation Technology Associate of Applied Science. 

The Legacy Campus’ opening comes a little over a year after ACC’s Parker Campus was closed. The building was sold to DCSD.
