Colorado Springs School

Private Day School – Colorado Springs , Colorado

Colorado Springs School, founded in 1962, is a private, college preparatory day school enrolling international students from 9th through 11th grades. Students learn through traditional and experiential methods based in “real world” experiences inside and outside of the classroom. Small class sizes help students build strong and supportive relationships for personal and intellectual growth.

The historic 28-acre campus is located on a former estate built in 1907, at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. The main building, The Trianon (used for classrooms and administration) is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The school’s facilities include a 290-seat theater, a gallery, performing arts center, and gymnasium.

Sports and Arts

For those with more creative interests, 3 plays/musicals are performed each year in the on-campus performing arts center along with many arts courses.
