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.

Spring is an optimal time to tour our campus and classrooms--with the energy and excitement of end-of-year projects and experiences.  For families interested in our Pre-K through Grade 2 classes, please join our 9:00 a.m. drop-in tour on:
Thursday, May 18
Wednesday, May 24

No RSVP is necessary.  Simply come to the Admission Office when you arrive on campus.  Please call 303-914-2513 with any 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.
