A student and parent post-secondary planning curriculum is offered for each grade level including:

Students are offered six individual meetings with a college counselor over the course of their four years at AHS. The goal is to find the right college/post-secondary match for each student and to assist the student in the process of application.
A Local College Scholarship program is also administered which connects Aspen High School seniors to more than $470,000 in community support from 50+ local businesses, organizations, and philanthropists.
Each fall, the Aspen School District hosts the Colorado Western Slope College Fair during which admissions officers from 250 colleges and universities are available to connect with students. Workshops are offered during the College Fair covering topics such as business majors, the arts, student-athletes, highly selective schools, financial aid, and our outstanding Colorado and regional colleges.
Each spring, the community offers a regional GlenX Career Expo that brings high students together with local businesses and business leaders. Students learn about career choices and the next steps to take in order to achieve.
