Empowering BVSD graduates


Through after-school workshops Impact on Education provides high school students with training and resources to empower them for success after graduation. Student participants explore their interests and opportunities they may not have considered or been exposed to, that are available for them to pursue in high school and beyond.

The 2023-24 Career Readiness Academy will be offered at Boulder High, Broomfield High and Centaurus High.

We administer a variety of college scholarships for students pursuing post-secondary education at the college and university levels.


The Boulder Valley School District GradPlus program aims to expand graduate’s skill sets by providing every student with learning opportunities and credentials that offer a head start on a career, postsecondary education, or both.

Grad Plus is intended to break down barriers between traditional academics and career and technical education, allowing students to maximize the credentials they earn across multiple quadrants. 

By their graduation date, every BVSD student will complete one or more:

  • Advanced Placement course, International baccalaureate course or Concurrent/Dual enrollment course
  • Seal of Biliteracy
  • Industry Certification
  • Internship, Apprenticeship, Other work-based learning experience


Impact on Education has been supporting BVSD in the creation and  implementation of GradPlus behind the scenes for several years. For the 2022-23 school year, Impact on Education investments will support students in financial need and may include:

  • Subsidizing Front Range Community College courses being offered after school hours to BVSD students
  • Fees for students to take AP or IB tests to earn college credit
  • Fees for students to access industry certifications
  • Fees for students to take language placement tests and earn college level foreign language credits or tests so they can earn the seal of biliteracy
  • Textbook and material fees for students to concurrently enroll in college level classes at CU, Metro State or Front Range Community College


A donation to Impact on Education allows us to invest in the 30,000 students and 4,000 educators of the Boulder Valley School District.
