Within a supportive school community, the Academy of Arts & Knowledge offers a robust arts program that complements core academics, fosters critical thinking skills and creates confident, creative individuals with the freedom to reach their full potential.
Fine Arts: We build confident students who explore, experience, and understand how the Fine Arts of Art, Dance, Music, Theatre, and Writing allow for greater learning and significant personal expression. Students experience 90 minutes of Art and 90 minutes of Music each week. Significant Dance, Drama and Writing learning are woven into the daily curriculum. Numerous extracurricular and enrichment activities are also offered in the arts that augment the student’s learning during the day.

World Civilization Curriculum: The interdisciplinary world civilization curriculum studies the origins and fruits of all civilizations – the fine arts, math and sciences, and the diverse cultures that emerged from those civilizations. As each unit ends, we gather together as a community to celebrate the student’s learning with performances that highlight the specific time period and place that the class studied.
Wellness and Positive Culture: We build a positive culture around our collective ability – students and teachers alike – to Listen, Respect, Give, and Try. Moreover, we embrace a Wellness Curriculum that brings health, safety, nutrition, and playful cooperation to the students with 2 Wellness classes each week. Wellness curriculum incorporates our student’s physical health, but also the student’s social and emotional well being.
Family Centered: As a school of choice, we know that our families come from all over the Front Range and we strive to build a strong community at our school. Frequent parent/teacher communication, an involved parent body and a small school allows us to engage each family in their child’s learning. We come together to celebrate and experience the student’s many performances and accomplishments.
