Why CSS? Inspired Learning. Masterful Teaching. PreK-12.
An independent school education is a significant investment of a family’s resources and we recognize that you have many choices for your child’s education. That is why we thank you for considering The Colorado Springs School. We look forward to helping you explore a CSS education for your child and family.
At CSS, personal engagement is the norm! Our students are thinkers and problem solvers, and find themselves and their purpose as they engage in all academic, club and athletic activities. Students discover the real world through experiential and hands on learning — enabling them to become critical thinkers and entrepreneurs, not just test takers. Our students are confident, collaborative, innovative and ready for the world.
Every child has the right to learn in an individual, unique way… That’s why we create an environment where students can cultivate their passions and realize their potential. We believe every student deserves to meet the world with ingenuity, critical thinking and personal integrity. CSS students are inspired and aspire to make a difference.
Balancing tradition and innovation… Our committed teachers, dynamic and applicable curriculum, small classes, and authentic, real-world seminars reach and teach students in ways traditional educational environments cannot. At CSS, students learn actively, collaborate with their teachers and peers, present their work for review in a variety of media, and take time to reflect on their experiences. Our teachers share feedback frequently and are invested in their students success and our learning community.
We are proudly independent… The Colorado Springs School has been proudly serving the Pikes Peak region for over 50 years. We are the only college preparatory day, and international school serving students in preschool through high school in Colorado Springs.
Numerous national studies show the advantages of Preschool-12 schools for students at all grade levels. The continuity of teachers, classmates, programs and expectations appears to enhance academic, social and emotional development for students leading to greater academic achievement and improved self-esteem and confidence.
At CSS we will know and value your child, support them as needed, encourage them to stretch beyond their comfort level, and give them every opportunity to grow in myriad ways as they prepare for kindergarten, elementary, middle school, high school, college and life beyond our campus.
