The MSU Denver Excel Program is designed to provide high school seniors with guidance and assistance in achieving their higher education goals and aspirations. The program begins by supporting students through the college process and building connections while in high school. Those relationships carry over to Metropolitan State University of Denver and are strengthened by providing activities to develop a connection to the campus and other peers, build a community, and support students through their higher education experience.
The program builds partnerships between MSU Denver and select high schools in Adams County and Aurora Public Schools. The program provides students college going support, enhances the school's college-going culture, and provides services to enrich parent awareness and involvement in their child's education.
