We believe education is on the verge of looking very different, and we're looking for inspired leaders willing to support us in that mission.
· Inspired by entrepreneurial spirit: In 2005, Aspen Academy was founded by three women who had attended public schools, and wanted to give children an opportunity to learn and grow by focusing not only on what they know, but who they are -- kindness is our one rule.
·Driven by values: Be Kind. Do Good. Work Hard. Make the World Better. Our community thrives with people committed to these values and we're serious about making the world better: one student at a time. We've developed an inclusive and accepting community where our staff and faculty feel empowered to create learning that engages students emotionally and intellectually. Our team takes risks and embraces the growth mindset, celebrates diverse backgrounds and perspectives and is committed to social responsibility.
· Focused on growth and transforming what education looks like: In addition to our focus on character development and leadership, we created a first-of-its-kind financial literacy and entrepreneurship program taught from Kindergarten through 8th grade that includes: economics, personal financial literacy, innovation, and entrepreneurship. (Imagine the difference it makes when students learn to collaborate and learn the basics of personal finance in kindergarten?)

The theater art of Drama at Aspen Academy will provide students an opportunity to engage in improvisation, memorization, pantomime and stage directions for a well-rounded base of drama. Through physical and verbal expression, students perform as individuals and members of a group. Through Drama, students gain self-confidence, public speaking skills and teamwork.
