Welcome!

The Academy of Urban Learning (AUL) is a Denver Public Schools charter high school serving Denver-area students ages 14 to 21.  If you are a high school student experiencing difficult barriers to achieving success at your current school and worry about the possibility of graduating with a high school diploma, AUL may be for you.

At AUL, we care about you, and we strive to build relationships with students and families that encompass our core values of:

Community   |   Academics   |   Respect   |   Empowerment   | Service

We provide the wrap-around services and individualized support our students need to succeed academically and socially, and to become successful, self-sufficient adults. Students, families, and staff agree: AUL is different. Click through our website to see why!

Coming to AUL may help those goals that seem just out of reach, begin to be right at your fingertips. And those doors that keep closing? We can give you the tools to open them back up.

Colorado Crisis Services

There  are four ways to get confidential and immediate help: by phone at 1-844-493-8255, over text message (text the word “TALK” to 38255), via an online chat service, or at walk-in centers throughout metro Denver, northern, the southeast region and the western slope. Many of these services are available 24/7.

Safe2Tell

Safe2Tell allows students, parents and community members to anonymously report anything that is concerning or threatening. According to their website, those who use the service can help stop a friend from committing suicide, get a friend to stop using drugs, or keep a bully from continuing to make other students miserable.
