Get to know us.

We are a site/school-based district, meaning schools make the best decisions to support their communities. This allows our schools to offer unique programs and curriculum.

School Choice

We participate in School Choice.  Whether you're living in or out of district boundaries, you may select the best school option for your child. School Choice is offered based on space availability at each school.

High Achieving

We have earned numerous awards and recognitions and have been Accredited with Distinction by the Colorado Department of Education since 2009.


A growing district, we’ve added approximately 7,000 students since 2003 and anticipate adding 5,000 by 2028.

To support growth we passed a $230 million bond measure in 2016. The bond funding is providing improvements to all our schools. This funding has allowed us to build Legacy Peak Elementary School, Chinook Trail Middle School, a permanent home for School in the Woods, the Center for Modern Learning, and an as yet unnamed new elementary school.

Our Schools and Programs

Encompassing 130 square miles, the district is home to:

  • 22 elementary schools,
  • seven middle schools,
  • six high schools,
  • an online/hybrid high school,
  • an online/hybrid K-8 program,
  • a Home School Academy, and
  • a School in the Woods for fourth grade students.

The district houses a preschool program, a summer enrichment program and also supports two Charter Schools: The Classical Academy and New Summit Charter Academy.


Communication serves Academy District 20, its students, schools, employees, families and community. We help to strengthen both external and internal communication through branding, marketing, public relations, advertising and digital experience management.
