Through superior academics and mentoring, The Colorado Springs School prepares students to think independently and to meet the needs of a dynamic world with leadership, ingenuity, problem-solving skills, and personal integrity.
Learning is grounded in experience. By delivering challenging academic material through traditional and experiential settings, The Colorado Springs School offers our students hands on and practical opportunities to learn more thoroughly, to retain information longer, and to apply it to new settings.
This deliberate approach to teaching also offers students opportunities to learn more about themselves, others, and the world.
Building on strong, supportive relationships afforded by small classes and a safe environment, we advance each student's personal and academic growth.
We teach to a higher standard than the common core.

We moved to Colorados Springs so that our two high school aged daughters could attend the Upper School. We chose this school for its academic rigor and amazing experiential learning program. We wanted our girls to be well rounded, develop their soft skills and meet life with kindness and integrity. The school community embraced us immediately. Both of my daughters ran cross country for the first time in their lives and their team went to state. One of my daughters is going to try basketball. The kids are encouraged to participate no matter their prior experience. Our daughters are thriving academically and socially and we could not be happier parents.
