  • -Juniors who may be interested in the variety of programs that ACC offers.
  • -Any students who just want more information about all the possibilities at ACC
Date:  April 8th
Time:  It will likely take the full school day
Cost:  $10
The deadline to sign up is Wednesday, March 30th, but we only have 10 spots reserved on the bus so it is first come first served for this trip.  To register students need to bring in the signed permission form along with $10 to secure their spot.

District News

High school students across Douglas County, and many students in respective feeder schools, are once again learning that a little kindness can go a long way. Again this year, our high schools hosted Wish Weeks to make dreams come true for Make-A-Wish Foundation beneficiaries.

The Douglas County School District (DCSD) Board of Education has named Thomas S. Tucker, Ph.D. as the sole finalist to lead our 68,000-student district as superintendent on a unanimous vote.


The American School Counseling Association (ASCA) has certified Sagewood Middle School as a Recognized ASCA National Model Program (RAMP). A prestigious honor, Sagewood is now the only middle school in the state of Colorado to have gained this certification. Schools must receive a near-perfect score on ASCA’s scoring rubric, which outlines guidelines for building and maintaining student achievement, behavior, counseling curriculum, school culture, and several other factors, in order to become certified.
