School Information

Education has been important to the citizens of Golden since the earliest days of its founding. Golden became the home of three centers of higher learning in the 1870s — Jarvis Hall, Matthews Hall, and the Colorado School of Mines. Only the Colorado School of Mines remains today, a well-respected university specializing in engineering and applied sciences, but many other schools have been founded since in its wake.

Many educational options are available in the area for educating Golden’s citizens of every age.
