College - Career Readiness
Harrison School District Two is proud to have concurrent enrollment partnerships with Colorado State University Pueblo, Pikes Peak Community College and the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
Concurrent enrollment opportunities exist at both of our HSD2 high schools and allow our students to take college credit-bearing courses while they are still in high school. These courses are offered for nominal fees or at no cost to the student and their family. Depending on the course, students will receive instruction in one of the following manners:
- Courses taught at the high school campus by professors employed by the district.
- Courses taught at the high school campus by professors employed by the college/university.
- Courses taught at the college/university campus by professors employed by the college/university.
Concurrent enrollment is a low cost to no cost opportunity for students to gain college credits prior to high school graduation. There are numerous benefits to this approach. Check with your high school counseling department for specifics on concurrent enrollment and whether it is right for your student.

Ali Duran - Concurrent Enrollment Site Coordinator
Early Childhood Education and Marketing Instructor
I am a proud Michigan State University graduate with a B.S. in Merchandising Management and a M.A. in Education. I came to Colorado to pursue my dreams of being a buyer for the Broadmoor Golf Club. I have spent years in the business industry and landed into the position of teaching young students the ins and outs of the business world. I truly can’t envision myself anywhere else than the classroom! Along with teaching Marketing, I also teach my other passion of Early Childhood Education. I firmly believe that every student has a path, and we as educators need to help them discover it.

In high school, he began developing websites with GeoCities while also running track as a Panther, and editing Harrison's school paper The Pawprint.

Dr. Tony Wolusky, Political Science Professor
I have been teaching political science, criminal justice, criminology, business law and paralegal studies for over 28 years, both online and in traditional face-to-face classroom settings. I hold a B.S. (International Affairs) from the USAF Academy, an M.Ed. (Counseling) from Montana State University, a J.D. from Golden Gate University School of Law, an M.A. (International Relations) from Salve Regina University, and a Ph.D. (Education Technology Management) from Northcentral University.
I also served in the US Air Force for 28 years. I was raised in Boston but left there in 1976 to join the Air Force and see the world. After graduating from the Air Force Academy, I served as an Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Launch Officer during the height of the Cold War, then taught political science and military law at St. Michael’s College, Winooski, Vermont, as an AFROTC instructor. I then elected to go into the Reserves as an intelligence officer while attending law school in San Francisco. I became a Deputy DA in San Bernardino, California, after law school, but later decided to go back into the active duty Air Force as a judge advocate (JAG) and went to Ramstein Air Base, Germany. Over the next 14 years as a JAG, I served as a prosecutor as well as a defense attorney, ultimately litigating 35 trials for offenses up to premeditated murder. I served as a military attorney not only in Germany, but across the U.S., Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Bosnia. In Bosnia, I served as part of NATO’s SFOR (Stabilization Force) and as a member of the U.S. Joint Interagency Task Force with the mission to monitor terrorism in the Balkans and apprehend war criminals. I was in Saudi Arabia in 1996 immediately after the terrorist attack on U.S. Air Force personnel at the Khobar Towers in Dhahran and provided operational law guidance for our response to that attack. I returned to the USAF Academy as an Associate Professor of Law and, later, as a senior legal advisor to the Superintendent. I retired from the Air Force in 2004 and settled in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I served as Commander, VFW Post 7829, Monument, Colorado, for 4 years, then the Colorado VFW State Judge Advocate, and served as the National VFW Judge Advocate General (2016-2017). I am now the Colorado VFW JAG. I also enjoy trail running in the mountains of Colorado.
