Learn About our Early College Program!
After I graduated from DHPH, I moved to Denver, got a full time job working at a national nonprofit organization as the regional organizing coordinator. I am proud that I graduated with my Master’s on May 3rd from Regis University. Also, I co-created a scholarship that financially assists Pueblo high school seniors. Because of CHPA, I was able to graduate with my Associates at 17, Bachelors at 20, and Masters at 22 years old. I owe that all to the concurrent enrollment program at DH.
After graduating from CHPA I made the decision to join the Marine Corp. From this I am learning many skills that will be useful both during my active service, and once I part ways with the Corp. I'm proud of the choices I've made during high school as well as after because those decisions have kept me out of trouble and have set me up for success further down the road. CHPA has given me the opportunity to travel as well as the opportunity to get a head start on college for free.
DHPH offered a variety of opportunities for me such as performing with Mariachi Aguila that opened my performing opportunities to travel Internationally to Vienna, Austria. DHPH had smaller class sizes and encouraged students to challenge themselves by attending college classes concurrent to their high school career. I also enjoyed playing golf and learning a life sport to help me to be well rounded as a musician, scholar and athlete. Early College Program I was privileged enough to start the Early College program at PCC at the age of 13 my freshman year of high school and graduated Cum Laude from PCC at the age of 16 with an AA degree in general studies. I also graduated my junior year of high school at the age of 16 and was accepted to United World College in Montezuma, New Mexico! I enjoyed the challenges, the freedom and the non-conventional surroundings. This has given me a head start in my academic career and I am forever grateful. Tradition of the School The traditions of DHPH are still in the making, however the ones I will miss are all of the school dances, football games and singing the National Anthem, CCA day, Latino Heritage Day, and Dress for Success. I recently attended Girls State and was selected to go to Girls Nation. I attribute my nomination to my hard work, dedication, academic background, family support and the experiences of being a DHPH/PCC student.
