From Colorado College

Welcome to the Block Plan, where you’ll take one class at a time for 3 ½ weeks. Prepare to dive into your current passion in small discussion-based classes, where professors will know your name, encourage you to grow, and respect your stride. Master the art of balance with clubs, internships, work, athletics, community service, and adjuncts.

Welcome to block breaks, four days to relax, to climb one of Colorado’s 54 peaks higher than 14,000 feet or explore the dynamic sand dunes, forests, and canyons of the Southwest.

Welcome to a vibrant community of students eager to communicate, debate, defend, think, and engage.

Welcome to 32 blocks of curiosity, adventure, and imagination, to the moment for unearthing your passions, exploring and understanding the world, and your individual growth.

Enjoy the ride.

Block Plan at Colorado College

At Colorado College, time works differently. Our students take one class for three-and-a-half weeks, followed by a four-and-a-half day break. For three hours every weekday, CC Tigers dive into their academic interests—focusing their entire attention on one subject. The days of finishing your math homework in English class and stressing over finals week are over.
