The College of Architecture and Planning offers noncredit opportunities for ambitious high school students. These programs are perfect for young students interested in learning more about architecture, landscape architecture, urban planning, and urban design.

Current High School Programs


The College of Architecture and Planning (CAP) offers a summer, noncredit program called Architecture in the City for high school students. This is an interdisciplinary program designed for entering their sophomore, junior, senior year of high school and recent high school graduates. The week-long camp will give participants the opportunity for a hands on experience in model building and drawing techniques while exposing them to architecture, landscape architecture, urban design, and urban planning. This commuter program will be offered at the University of Colorado Denver Campus from a Monday through a Friday. Participants with and without design backgrounds are welcome.

*Summer 2022 will be an in-person camp. Please check back in Spring 2022 for camp dates and registration. Any questions can be directed to the Program Coordinator at Jeana.Delamarter@ucdenver.edu.
