The REDI Lab at CA is a 12-week, spring trimester “school-within-a-school” experience. REDI is an acronym for the cornerstones of the program: Research, Entrepreneurship, Design, and Inquiry. It was launched on the Colorado Academy campus with its first group of students in the spring of 2017. The program is highly personalized and collaborative and uses self-directed learning as an opportunity for high school juniors to grow as problem solvers who are better prepared for college and work.
The Lab was created to challenge students to exert more agency and independence in their education. It gives students the time and support to work on an innovative project while also completing the course work required to maintain their path toward graduation. Students in the Lab are guided through the design thinking process to create innovative projects. Click here for more information.
