Why Denver?

Why Our Denver Campus?

Spartan College’s Denver campus has a proud history of graduating more than 15,000 students with career-focused educations in a variety of targeted in-demand and growing fields. Our campus is located in Broomfield, Colorado between Denver and Westminster, and is accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC). Classes are kept small for optimal learning in facilities that sport a combined $7.5M in training aids. Over time the college has evolved to stay in step with industry needs and changes.

You can graduate and enter the workforce in just 10-20 months.

Classes run about seven hours a day – to keep you learning – not burning out. And some programs offer day and/or evening classes. Our admissions representatives will help you create a schedule that fits your lifestyle.
