Coronavirus Update: Second Semester
Thank you for your continued partnership and support during this challenging and complex time for our schools and community.

Instead, young learners could be found listening intently to stories in reading circles, sounding out words together around small tables, and completing innovative design challenges.
What do you want to be when you grow up? For students in St. Vrain, they do not have to wait very long to start exploring career opportunities. As St. Vrain continues to blend the lines between high school and postsecondary life, students are able to explore career opportunities, earn credits and industry certifications, and receive college degrees – all while in high school.
