The University of Colorado Pre-Collegiate Development Programs (PCDP) prepare and motivate prospective first-generation college students to pursue a postsecondary education.

This series of six year-long programs serving middle school and high school students provides curricular, co-curricular and extracurricular resources that prepare program participants for the rigors of academic life at CU or any other higher education institution. Collectively, these programs serve school districts and different middle and high schools along Colorado’s Front Range.
