Admission
The CA Experience Starts Here
Just as you may want to get to know our school, our admission process helps us get to know you and your child. Our process is carefully designed to engage you in the same kind of interaction you and your family would have with our faculty and staff if you decide to enroll at Colorado Academy. We welcome your interest! Find out more by exploring our website, reading our admission magazine (located on the right side of this page), and visiting our campus.

Our campus is full of energy and excitement over the summer—with students composing music, programming robots, juggling and unicycling, rock climbing, swimming, throwing clay, learning lacrosse skills, writing poetry, problem solving, performing, making friends, and having fun. 
 
The Admission Office is open every week day over the summer. We invite you to drop by our office in Welborn House. We will also be offering tours on a drop-in basis at 9:00 a.m. on the following days:

Tuesday, July 18
Tuesday, July 25
 
No RSVP is necessary.  Simply look for us at the CA Tent near the summer programs registration table! Please do not hesitate to contact any of us at 303-914-2513 with questions. 
 
If these dates do not work for your schedule, please call us to arrange your campus tour for another day.  Alternatively, tour our 94-acre campus online or take advantage of one of the many events open to the community including our SPEAK lecture events, music recitals, theater productions, or athletic competitions. We look forward to getting to know you.

Catherine Laskey, Director of Admission & Financial Aid

The central ingredient to success at CA is a child’s insatiable desire to learn. With support from their family and the expertise of our faculty, CA students take advantage of the abundant opportunities for personal growth on our campus. Students also learn from each other, which is why we carefully craft the composition of each class to provide an eclectic mix of talents, backgrounds, and perspectives.
