Registration Information

Ferguson High is designated an Alternative Education Campus (AEC) by the Colorado Department of Education.  This designation means 90% or more of our students fall into at least one of the at risk categories identified by Colorado Statute (SB-09-163). Questions in the Ferguson High School application help determine if a student qualifies in one or more of these at-risk categories. These questions also help determine if students are a good fit to join the Ferguson community.


Founded in 1972, Ferguson High School is the oldest alternative high school in the state of Colorado. We serve approximately 130 students each quarter. As an alternative high school we pride ourselves on providing a school experience designed to meet the unique needs of the students we serve. As a small school we have a community atmosphere. We are able to work with each and every student to support their school success and unique pathway to graduation. We are proud to serve the Thompson School District by affording students who are accepted a comprehensive alternative high school experience.
