Our curriculum is tailored to meet the unique needs and interests of gifted learners, ensuring they are engaged and challenged in every subject. and learning alongside their "idea-mates" in multi-age classrooms.
At AcademyACL, we foster a sense of belonging and provide a supportive network of teachers, parents, and peers who understand and appreciate the abilities of gifted learners.
We offer a wide range of enrichment activities, including clubs, competitions, and field trips, to further enhance the educational experience of our students.
Our open enrollment begins in November, with requests for enrollment due the first Wednesday in March by 4 p.m. We invite families to tour with us to observe classes, speak to current students, and offer shadow days so that prospective students can experience a day in our program.
Parents learn about our program and consider their individual child/ren’s educational needs. Check out the Colorado Department of Education's definition of "gifted". The National Association for Gifted Children has resources for "Is My Child Gifted?" Visit our Colorado Springs School District 11 to learn more about local identification procedures.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 719-434-6566 to be added to a tour.
Tours are available on select days by appointment. Young children may be impatient by the end of the tour, so we leave their attendance to your discretion.
Summer tours depend on office hours and facility projects.
Please also tour the photo albums on our Facebook pages: AcademyACLConnect, Forest Green at Pike Park, AcademyACLRobotics, and GeekThinkFilms.
Open enrollment for the upcoming school year runs November 1 through the first Wednesday in March. At the closing deadline, all students with an enrollment request are entered into a lottery system. Enrollment paperwork must be for the current open enrollment period. After the lottery's waiting lists are created, additional students may be added to the bottom of any such lists at any time. Lists are recycled again through a new lottery for those families on a waiting list for the current year who also want to be considered for the new year; waiting lists do not remain from year to year to year.
This link will open the Request for Enrollment form in a new tab and may take a few moments to load.
Online enrollment form
Our lottery is held the evening of the second Wednesday in March. Families are assigned a lottery number and seats are filled according to our Lottery Policy. Families are encouraged to attend in person, however all families receive notification of their result of the lottery within a few days. When a seat has been offered, we request records from the previous school and review those records. When that step has been completed, a formal confirmation of enrollment is sent.
