Through a unique public-private partnership, Denver Public Schools and Florence Crittenton Services provide the following to pregnant and parenting girls ages 14 to 21:

  • On-site high school academics
  • College and career planning
  • Childcare at our Early Childhood Education Center
  • Parenting classes
  • On-site health center for moms and children
  • Basic and emergency needs support, including diapers, wipes, and other essentials
  • Personal Family Advocate to help you and your family navigate resources and relationships
  • Transportation and housing support

New mothers receive at least six weeks of homebound academic and social-emotional support while on school maternity leave. In addition, teen mothers enrolled at the high school are able to participate in concurrent enrollment college courses, allowing them to take remedial coursework and first-year classes while still receiving the social-emotional support and child care from Florence Crittenton Services which helps them to succeed.

The high school has a state-of-the-art STEM classroom and a MEDConnect program with paid internships. It also has a new gymnasium with safe and appropriate fitness equipment for pregnant and parenting students for physical education classes as well as after-school opportunities for the whole family, including yoga, playgroups, and dance classes.
