Celebrating 60 Years

Join us on a journey through our past, present, and future, as we celebrate 60 years as The Colorado Springs School.

The Colorado Springs School proudly celebrates 60 years of friendship, hands-on learning, and growth. This webpage is designed both to reflect on and acknowledge the history and people who have led our school to success over the past six decades and to prepare for a future that will allow us to remain one of the most respected PreK to grade 12 independent day schools in Colorado State.

Celebrating 60 Years of Community-Building

The following albums were provided by alumni or taken from the CSS yearbook, Et Apres, through the decades. The CSS yearbooks' name "Apres" is based on the names of the school's first four graduates:

  • Anne Clausen
  • Paula Johnson
  • Rose Crumpacker
  • Elizabeth Long

An 'S' was later added to make the French word "Apres," which can mean either after, afterward, or behind.
