We Value

  • Strong Academics are delivered through an uncommonly thorough and genuine learning experience - in and out of the classroom.
  • Character and Leadership skills are developed as we guide our students toward integrity, kindness and an ability to be responsible for self and others.
  • Motivated Students love coming to school and develop a life-long love of learning in an atmosphere that promotes hands-on discovery.
  • Authentic Relationships Unveil Each Student's Unique Gifts through small classes, deep faculty commitment, strong parent partnerships, and a range of diverse students.
  • An Inspirational Environment, with historic surroundings, committed teachers, and a dynamic learning community, promote intellectual curiosity.
  • A Global Perspective is encouraged as we challenge each student to use his or her strong self-knowledge and leadership skills to make a difference in our community and the world. Our diverse student population includes students from overseas.

High Test Scores

Test scores are just one of the many measures of success for students at The Colorado Springs School, whose scores on standardized tests are among the highest in the region. Because we are an independent school, we use the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) for our younger students.

  • Our Children's and Middle School students consistently score in the high 90th percentile range on the ITBS.
  • Our Upper School students' SAT, ACT and AP scores are consistently among the highest in the region.  The average Colorado SAT score is 1695 and the average National SAT score is 1509.  The average Colorado ACT score is 20.6 and the average National ACT score is 21.0.
