The CA Experience Starts Here
Just as you may want to get to know our school, our admission process helps us get to know you and your child. Our process is carefully designed to engage you in the same kind of interaction you and your family would have with our faculty and staff if you decide to enroll at Colorado Academy. We welcome your interest! Find out more by exploring our website, reading our admission magazine (located on the right side of this page), and visiting our campus.
If you are interested in applying for the 2016-2017 school year, the online application will be available mid-September, so please check back then.  Please see our online checklist of application steps by visiting the How to Apply page.

Not yet ready to apply? There are many opportunities to learn more about CA: tour our 94-acre campus online or take advantage of one of the many events open to the community including our SPEAK lecture events, music recitals, theatre productions, or athletic competitions. We look forward to getting to know you.

Catherine Laskey, Director of Admission & Financial Aid

The central ingredient to success at CA is a child’s insatiable desire to learn. With support from their home environment and the expertise of our faculty, CA students take advantage of the abundant opportunities for personal growth on our campus. Students also learn from each other, which is why we carefully craft the composition of each class to provide an eclectic mix of talents, backgrounds, and perspectives.
