What do Humanex Academy graduates do after high school graduation?
Humanex excels at preparing students for life beyond high school. We offer honors and college-bound classes in all subject areas, and, on average, 70-80 percent of Humanex Academy graduates enter a two year school (such as Arapahoe Community College, Red Rock Community College), 20 percent enter a four year college (such as Mesa State College University of Colorado-Boulder, Hofstra University) or a technical/training program (Warren Tech, Aveda Institute), and about 10 percent of our students join the workforce.
While many of our students fall under the categories of twice-exceptional and intellectually would have no difficulty academically, our students often are developmentally behind their same age peers in the areas of executive function and emotional resiliency that are required for college and training success. Therefore, Humanex recognizes those deficiencies and works with both students and parents to develop a successful transition plan.
Does Humanex have an open campus?
No. We have found that having a closed campus helps us to be more effective with helping students make good decisions, and it contributes to creating a positive school community.
What are the class sizes at Humanex?
Our student-teacher ratio ranges from 6:1 to 10:1. We have a strong commitment to keeping our class sizes small.
