• ASCENT and TREP are programs that help Cherry Creek students move into post-secondary education with financial support. CCSD pays for tuition, books and fees. ASCENT is a one-year program; TREP is a two-year program for students interested in pursuing a career in education.  Both programs take place after a student's senior year. Students can attend Metropolitan State University, local community colleges, Emily Griffith Technical College or Pickens Technical School.  Please click the options below to find out more about ASCENT and TREP including how to qualify.
