Advancing educational equity by building long-term partnerships with under-resourced Colorado students, their families and communities to cultivate and inspire the joy of learning while closing the opportunity gap.
Our vision is a future in which every Colorado child thrives intellectually, socially, emotionally and physically.
By establishing strong bonds with our students, we strive to make every student feel valued and heard, building self-confidence and self-esteem, the foundation for pursuing a choice-filled life.
We offer a six-week summer enrichment program and year-round programming that focuses on the whole child through academic skill-building, social-emotional support, health and wellness activities, and much more.
Students begin in Pre-K and stay through high school, building necessary life-skills along the way. We commit to offering small class sizes, mental health support, a blend of STEAM and literacy programming, engaging field trips, and leadership training within a project-based curriculum structure.
