Third Warren Tech center to be built in Littleton

Center to open in 2021 next to Dakota Ridge High School

After setting its sights on opening a third campus for Warren Tech - Jeffco’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) center that has attracted statewide media attention for its programming — the district has selected a location for the new center.

On Oct. 24, Jeffco Public Schools announced that the third Warren Tech, Warren Tech South, will be built on the Dakota Ridge High School property in Littleton, 13399 W. Coal Mine Ave.

In 1973, Pi Warren established the first Warren Tech Center to remove barriers to CTE learning. Decades later, a second campus exists at 11325 Allendale Dr. in Arvada, with an ever-increasing demand spurring the creation of the third campus.

Warren Tech is open to juniors or seniors ages 16 and older, with some programming available for graduated students, or individuals 21 and older, through Red Rocks Community College. High school students attend the center while also attending another high school. Warren Tech programs center around trades and technologies such as health sciences, public safety and hospitality.

The new campus location was selected based on the size of the site, its accessibility and its proximity to a high school, Tim Reed said in a press release. Reed is the executive director of facilities and construction management for Jeffco Public Schools.

The center is scheduled to open in fall 2021 and will cost an estimated $10 million from the Jeffco Public Schools Capital Improvement Program.
