Military Families

Military families have been an important part of our community for many years. Our proximity to Fort Carson, The Air Force Academy and Peterson Air Force Base has allowed us the opportunity to enroll children of military families who bring a variety of talents and experiences to our student body.

The Colorado Springs School – also a member of ChildCare Aware of America – embraces service to our community, values the contributions of those who serve our country, and recognizes the unique needs of these families relocating to Colorado Springs. We understand the unique situations that often accompany military service and are dedicated to helping you apply, enroll and navigate Indexed Tuition in a manner that best meets your needs and schedule.

Please contact us by email or by phone at (719) 434-3500 and let us know that you are a military family – we are happy to connect you with current military families attending CSS. To obtain CSS's ChildCare Aware of America provider number or receive assistance with completing any forms, please contact the Office of Admissions as well.
