A student can grow from preschool through a doctorate without leaving Greeley!
Greeley-Evans School District 6 works with our community preschools to ensure that children in our community are physically, emotionally, socially and academically ready for school. Once they enter one of our 14 elementary or three K-8 schools, they’ll find programs designed to focus on core curricula – reading, writing and math – supplemented by science and social studies. All of our elementary schools provide instruction in music, technology, art, and physical education. Our K-8 schools combine elementary and middle school under one roof, while affording comfort and consistency.
Now in its third year, blended learning is becoming the norm in elementary and middle schools. Blended learning allows teachers to leverage technology to personalize learning for all students AND receive real-time data on student achievement.

University of Northern Colorado
One of the founding principles of the Union Colonists arriving in Colorado, education quickly became a priority. The citizens of Greeley asked the state to locate its teacher training school here. The State Normal School, founded in 1889, offered two-year teacher certificates, and began offering graduate degrees in 1913.
The University of Northern Colorado received its university designation in 1970 and currently offers more than 100 undergraduate and the same number of graduate programs to over 12,000 students. Beyond its Greeley campus, UNC provides extended studies in Loveland, Denver, Colorado Springs and online.
Small class sizes and a low student-to-faculty ratio (17:1) dominate courses at UNC. More than half of classes have fewer than 30 students. Six colleges offer award-winning education across campus, taught more often by tenured faculty than teaching assistants.
