Culture & Inclusivity

Welcoming, Understanding, and Respecting All
Colorado Academy is a community that values and honors difference, and seeks to be a place where students of all ages, and families of all backgrounds are understood, represented, and highly regarded. Many people visit our campus and immediately notice our welcoming atmosphere, our engaged and engaging students, and the multi-age interaction that is fostered through our Pre-K through 12 student body. Our intentional work in creating an inclusive school community emphasizes both the joy of acquiring knowledge and the right to do so in a place where all students can become creative, independent, responsible, and ethical people.
