Welcome New Families

Welcome to Aspen Academy. When we started the school in 2005, it was our goal to create a community that changes education and fosters the best in your students. We're grateful you've selected Aspen Academy as the best solution for education for your family.

Being new to an environment can be both exciting and a bit overwhelming: we understand and we’re here to support! Here are a few important ways for you and your family to become even more familiar with Aspen Academy.

New Student Kickstart Camp

June 22nd-25th, 2020

Getting to know your child is an integral part of our placement process as we consider the best social/emotional, developmental, and academic classroom fit for your student creating the optimum opportunity for a successful 2020-2021 school year.  All Kindergarten to 8th grade newly enrolled students are asked to attend our new student kickstarter class. Students will work in developmentally appropriate grade level groups with our expert teachers. During this camp your student can look forward to small group assessment and instruction to provide feedback and set summer goals for a smooth transition to Aspen Academy. We are looking forward to getting to know your child and welcome your family to our community. Register Here.
