Elective & Choice Programs

Choice Programs Logo


What is Choice Programs?


As a core element of Jeffco's strategic plan, Jeffco is meeting its mission to expand and promote well-rounded educational experiences through offerings in college coursework, CTE programs, health, music, physical education, STEM, theatre, visual arts, work based learning and world languages.


"Giving students the freedom to define authentic and purposeful goals for their learning, creating opportunities for students to lead that learning, and helping them to refine their work until it meets high standards of quality - the deeper their learning and engagement will be." (Mehta and Fine, 2019)

Why Choice Programs?

Students learn by doing, and choice programs offer students the ability to follow their passions, participate in authentic work, and be curious about the world around them. By exploring subjects outside of core coursework, students can gain a new perspective on future academic and career possibilities, learn about the world and more about themselves.

"Elective courses offer students ... the opportunity develop important life skills that stick with them throughout their lives." ( Lutz, 2021)
