Our Mission

Aspen Academy provides scholars with a well-rounded, Core Knowledge-based education that honors the intellectual, cultural, and social aspects of each scholar.

Our Vision

We seek to ensure our scholars experience growth, academic rigor, success, and well-being with the support of our engaged and involved Aspen community.

What Makes Us Different From Other Charter Schools?


Many parents seek an alternative school for their children where classes are smaller, and education meets the intellectual, creative, and social needs of each child.


  • We offer limited class sizes that provide a sense of community
  • We provide a literature-rich, Core Knowledge curriculum, and Singapore Math
  • We have an elementary Spanish program, Art, Music and P.E.
