Aspen Academy, a preschool through eighth grade private pre-paratory academy, will open in the Fall of 2005 at its new campus in Highlands Ranch.

The school’s academic environment will feature the Personalized Instruction Program, which ensures that each of its students’ unique gifts and talents are fully realized. A maximum student to teacher ratio of 12:1 will ensure the highest level of personalized instruction possible.

The Instructional Philosophy at Aspen Academy is the Socratic Method or Inquiry Based Learning, a process of teaching by question and answer as well as investigation. Flexible Grouping allows a teacher to group students according to ability levels, interest and learning styles. Community service, traditional school year calendar, and school uniforms are other features of Aspen Academy.
