February 21, 2020
In today’s society, students and families are faced with challenges that directly attack healthy childhood development. Everything Colorado Christian Academy does is to promote a lifelong legacy for each student and family that is rooted in a Christ-centered identity which gives students the confidence and resilience to thrive as they manage life’s successes and challenges. We believe this is possible when students relate to Jesus through a true knowledge of God combined with a clear understanding of themselves.
Colorado Christian purposefully focuses on the development of a healthy whole child by being brave enough to make strategic decisions related to schedule, work, diet, exercise, relationships, and family support.
Colorado Christian is a school for the future, rooted in the past. It is a school that focuses on creative innovation grounded in essential fundamental knowledge. As followers of Jesus, we should be the best and brightest in society because learning is a primary avenue by which we grow in relationship with God. He gave us a mind and it is our responsibility and opportunity to use it to the very best of our ability as an act of worship to our Creator.
The earlier kids start at Colorado Christian, the greater the impact our personalized educational approach will have on their lives by strategically pouring into them mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
Come check us out and be part of a movement to reclaim light and life in South Denver’s youth!
School Building Secured
Colorado Christian Academy will make its home at Valley View Christian Church. Valley View has been home to elementary schools before, and has remarkable facilities for our students, teachers, and staff. We are blessed that Pastor Phil Holland and the Valley View Elder Team are so passionate about Christian education and being a partner in starting a Christian school that provides an excellent education while focusing on the development of the whole child. They have moved quickly to accommodate our September 2020 start date and we look forward to this wonderful partnership as our faith communities grow together.
Head of School Announcement
Colorado Christian Academy has hired Matt Cartier (starting 3/1/2020) to be the school’s first Head of School. Matt’s passion for student learning and engagement is unmatched. Throughout his career, he has focused his educational leadership on the whole child, believing that every child thrives in an environment that is balanced with high expectations combined with high support.
Colorado Christian Academy is posed to be a phenomenal educational experience in South Denver as Matt has successfully been a part of several start up schools and businesses throughout his career. Most notably are Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch, CO; Pathway School in Laguna Hills, CA; Los Coyotes Middle School in La Mirada, CA; and Compass Educational Services in Highlands Ranch, CO.
Much of his career has been focused on getting students ready for high school and college and he believes the biggest predictor of success is that students have a clear understanding of who they are in light of who God is. This Christ-centered identity not only provides students with confidence in who they are but it also provides resilience because they learn to walk through this life in a real relationship with their Creator. It is His voice that gives students value and meaning. As students learn to be secure in following His voice, it frees them up to try and perform in a way that is not tied to anxiety and fear. We are made to learn and create freely and curiously!
