School soon will be in session at the first higher education
facility in Castle Rock - the new Arapahoe Community College Campus
at 4700 Castleton Way.
Registration already has opened for fall classes, which will get
under way in mid-October and end by mid-December. Most classes
being offered will be held during afternoons and evenings.
Course offerings include public speaking, world geography, United
States History, intermediate algebra, introduction to philosophy,
general psychology, astronomy, conversational Spanish and English
Five of the 13 classes being offered have a hybrid format,
combining a traditional classroom experience with the flexibility
of online instruction. Seven of the courses are guaranteed to
transfer to any Colorado public higher education institution.
The Castle Rock campus - in the same building as MyWedding.com,
visible from Interstate 25 on the northwest side of Town - still is
under construction. It is expected to be completed by
mid-September. Jill Garber, a Castle Rock resident, has been hired
as campus director. She will begin working at ACC's Littleton
campus on Sept. 1 and will move to the Castle Rock campus once
construction is completed.
ACC is regionally accredited, offers more than 100 degrees and
certificates and has the lowest tuition among Colorado's public
higher education institutions. Financial aid is available.
New students can apply for admission - and all students can
register - at arapahoe.edu. Assistance with these processes is
available at the Littleton campus, 5900 S. Santa Fe Drive, or by
calling 303-797-5637. For more information, email
Also coming soon to Castle Rock is the opportunity to earn a
master's degree in business administration or management and
leadership without ever leaving Town.
Webster University will offer courses toward those degrees starting
in January at the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce. Classes will be
held from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. Thursdays.
The program consists of five nine-week classes per year, with
breaks in between each class. Participants can earn a degree in a
little more than two years (or sooner).
Tuition is $1,500 per class for the 2011-12 school year. Military
discounts and financial aid are available, as well as transfer
credit, if applicable. Learn more at webster.edu/CastleRock, call
303-708-8305 or attend an open house from 6 to 7 p.m. Sept. 15 at
the Chamber, 420 Jerry St.
