Just what kind of school is Colorado Academy?
I am asked that question a lot.
This is a place that pulls you in, that engages you, excites you, and endears you. Every day on our campus, you can see our commitment to our mission to educate, nurture, and challenge the whole child. We offer an innovative and rigorous curriculum rooted in the liberal arts and sciences.
We do it with innovation and creativity, and by encouraging students to think outside the box. We do it with an incredible staff of dedicated teachers who spark students’ intellectual curiosity. We want students to ask “why” and also to have the freedom and courage to ask, “why not.”
We are a school that understands that a child’s formative years are profoundly important to who they become; we push students to grow as artists and athletes. We encourage their development through inclusivity and through service to others, and we ask them to take a hard look at their strength of character…to test and discover their own mettle.
One student described CA as “a small school made up of big people” – people with big hearts, enormous ability, and unbridled promise.
Please visit our campus and see for yourself what makes this school an extraordinary learning community.
