We are excited to announce that the JeffCo Innovation Faire is located at the historic Warren Tech High School and Red Rocks Community College, the center for innovation in Central Colorado.
Warren Tech is the premier Career and Technical Education center for Jefferson County Public Schools. We also serve Platte Canyon, Gilpin, Clear Creek, and Denver students. Warren Tech is widely recognized as an educational and technological leader, with students who competitively meet the challenges of the global community. They offer students career-focused learning, credit toward high school graduation, high school academic credit, community college credit, industry certification, internships, apprenticeships, and on-the-job experience.
Students participate and compete in state and nationally-recognized, career-focused student organizations. One hallmark of Warren Tech success is the number of community college credits awarded to their students each year. AP coursework is offered by some programs. In addition to preparing students for post-secondary education, they also partner with industry, providing a variety of industry and career certifications at state, national, and international levels.
