Lower School

If not for life, then what are we learning for?

Aspen Academy looks at learning as a way to ignite the personal passions and interests of each and every student - whoever you are, whatever you love, or wherever you want to go.With a highly differentiated, individualized, and data driven approach, we are able to zone in on what each student uniquely needs with regard to their performance levels, personal interests, learning styles, and strengths. Students are held to high expectations and our core academic curriculum reflects a clear commitment to the essential building blocks of child development in language, mathematics, social studies, science, the arts, fitness, and character and leadership. From PreKindergarten through 8th Grade, we provide exceptional training in fundamental skills and analytical thinking, while encouraging independence of mind, intellectual curiosity, and creative growth.

LETTER FROM LOWEr SCHOOL DIRECTOR

It is with great honor and enthusiasm that I welcome you to our Lower School community! Success begins with an extraordinary foundation in the elementary years encompassing next-generation education, depth of personal character and leadership, and cultivating the entrepreneurial spirit that thoughts are things. Individuals are their most creative at the age of five years old and in the Lower School we harness that creative spirit and guide our students to pursue academic excellence with passion and intent.

The partnership that exists between our extraordinary staff, families, and students ensures that we are collectively rising to our core values to be kind, do good, work hard and make the world better. It is the driving force behind our successful community strength and service program. With an open heart, I welcome you to our family and encourage you to reach out for more information.
