Everyone looks forward to lunch at Colorado Academy. Students and faculty gather to eat and engage in face-to-face conversations in a technology-free zone.
CA’s Dining Hall serves 1,290 lunches daily—providing healthy, nutritious, and as a recent graduate said, “flat-out delicious” meals. We serve students ages 4-18 and watch over their nutritional needs, address their allergy concerns, and get them to try new foods and flavors. We offer tasty options for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, and allergen-free diets.
Picky eaters? No problem! Your student will love it; they just don’t know it yet. We’ll help with that.
Daily selections can be made at any of our six individual stations:
Our salad bar offers more than 36 fresh options each day
Burgers, grilled cheese, and more are available from our grill station
Two international and diverse chef’s choices are offered daily
Two hot soups are made daily from scratch
Sandwiches and wraps are made to order at the deli counter
