Preparing Students for a Dynamic World

Founded in 1962, The Colorado Springs School (CSS) is a college-preparatory, day, and international school serving students from PreKindergarten through grade 12. Recognized as a top choice school and nestled in the shadows of the Rockies, The Colorado Springs School’s distinctive educational philosophy strikes a balance between innovation and tradition.

CSS – home to more than 330 students – offers a hands-on education with balanced concern for academic, social, emotional, and physical growth. Through superior academics and mentoring, The Colorado Springs School prepares students to think independently and to meet the challenges of a dynamic world with leadership, ingenuity, problem-solving skills, and personal integrity.

The Colorado Springs School prides itself on student engagement. Faculty and staff bring learning to life with project-based units, real-world connections, and student-centered classroom experiences. In addition to teaching, faculty members serve as class and club sponsors, student advisors, and Seminar leaders in our fast-paced, active, school community.

The school is situated on a 28 acre-campus with eight buildings, including several historically significant structures.
