Ascent Details

What is the Ascent Program?

The Ascent (Accelerating Students through Concurrent Enrollment) Program is a partnership between Red Rocks Community College and Jefferson High School dedicated to providing students access to college.  All students are invited to take college coursework in high school through concurrent enrollment classes taught at Jefferson.  Qualifying students have the option to participate in a fifth Year program that allows seniors to remain enrolled in high school and take a fifth year consisting entirely of college classes at the Red Rocks Community College campus.  Students can potentially earn an Associates Degree or transfer credits to a four year college.  The Jefferson High School Ascent Program encourages students to get an early start on college at minimal cost! You can start earning college credit as early as your Freshman Year!  Don't miss out on this phenomenal to your counselor today!
