Early College

DMLK is one of a select number of DPS high schools that has received early college designation from the state of Colorado. Through partnerships with local colleges and universities, this early college model allows students to take free college-level courses while in high school, and creates an intentional pathway that leads to a college degree. 

Our school is proud to offer students the opportunity to graduate high school with an Associate’s Degree or certification TUITION FREE while earning their high school diploma through concurrent enrollment. DMLK also offers the CareerConnect program, which accelerates students toward creating early career experience through community connections. It introduces students to career specific opportunities through field trips, mentor programs, internships, career training classes and even job placements.
