Head of School's Welcome & Blog
|If you are a student who wishes to be intellectually challenged about the world in which you live, if you want to grow as an artist and as an athlete through a variety of experiences, if you are interested in helping others through community service, and if you wish to develop strong character and leadership skills, then Colorado Academy is a school you should learn more about and visit.|
Here at Colorado Academy, our teachers want to help you become an individual ready to take on the challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century. With an innovative and rigorous curriculum rooted in the liberal arts and sciences, our teachers are dedicated to developing the critical thinking skills of students. With small class sizes, the faculty at Colorado Academy can get to know you as an individual and support you on your intellectual journey. Further, you will be surrounded by fellow students who want to learn and engage in rich classroom discussions.
When you walk onto the serene and beautiful campus of CA, you will immediately recognize that you have entered a unique school setting. Community life on CA’s campus is one in which values of honesty and respect for others and the environment are paramount. It is a community in which we strive to put our ideals into action. Here at Colorado Academy, you will be encouraged to develop your talent in arts and athletics and gain a balanced appreciation for the stimulating activities that complement the fundamental academic experience. From grades Pre-Kindergarten through twelve, CA seeks to develop “the whole person” and transform the lives of young people.
I encourage you to visit our campus and see for yourself what makes this school an extraordinary community.

|Signing Off for Summer|
Dear CA Community:
It has been another phenomenal year. We've put up a new building, created innovative education programming, developed a new iPad program about to roll out next year, won state championships and excelled at athletics, and nurtured a creative and talented artistic community. On top of this, we have had new developments in our experiential and outdoor education program. All the while, we have stayed true to our core mission of supporting students. Our community and our successful outcomes were on full display this past week with 5th and 8th grade Continuation events and 12th grade Commencement. These celebrations of key milestones affirm our work and CA's purpose. I have numerous thank you’s from parents who took the time to express what CA has done for their child. I am grateful for the work of our dedicated faculty.
I am looking forward to summer, but am about to head down to Haiti with our first student trip to our partner school in Nordette. I look forward to sharing out our work with our partner school and our partner organization, the Road to Hope, as we seek to further social justice and development in that troubled nation. I hope everyone will enjoy the summer, and I am already looking forward to next August when we all come together again.
To close out my blog this year, I though I would share out my commencement speech. Be safe this summer and get out there and make a difference!
