AP & CU Succeed Information

The CU Succeed program is a joint venture between Colorado high schools and the University of Colorado. The program allows students an opportunity to gain exposure to the college experience by taking college-level courses at their high school. Students enroll in the University of Colorado courses, located at their high school, taught by qualified teachers, at a reduced rate.

  • All CU Succeed courses at CMHS are approved by Course, not by instructor!

Advanced Placement courses are courses offered by the College Board. These courses have a set curriculum and offer a test at the end of every year in which students are graded on a 1 - 5 scale. Scores of 3, 4, or 5 can often be used to waive classes at many higher education institutions in the United States and globally.


On Thursday, February 3rd Mrs. Brenner and Mrs. Kutsner recorded a presentation about our AP and CU Succeed offerings at CMHS. Please see the resources below to access information regarding these programs:

We are excited to announce a huge improvement in our students' college planning experience as we transition to using an amazing new data-driven platform called Cialfo.

What does Cialfo mean and why are we switching? Cialfo (see-al-fo) is short for Citius Altius Fortius, which in Latin stands for Faster Higher Stronger. After a lot of research on various platforms, we concluded that Cialfo would offer an updated and improved experience for the college and career exploration process throughout high school.
