On the Journey View All News
There's no better way to learn science than by actually being a scientist. Fifth and Eighth Graders joined forces in a water sampling project that provides real data from Castle Creek to the Colorado Division of Wildlife. With this service learning project, students practice not only their data collection and lab skills, but also their powers of investigation and collaboration.
Tweens and teens are experiencing record levels of stress, anxiety, and depression, but there is reason for hope. ACDS recently hosted a leading psychologist from Children's Hospital Colorado to explain recent trends, along with strategies to help parents and children cope. Included: valuable resources for help and information.
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. issued a call for Americans to join together in service to others, and that's exactly how the Aspen Country Day community has decided to honor his legacy each year. It has become a favorite fixture on the school calendar. Here's a look at what each grade was doing to learn about civil rights, contribute to the common good, and put others first.
All about one of Aspen Country Day's signature programs, ski days. On these favorite afternoons, gym class gives way to our natural habitat, the slopes of Buttermilk, Aspen Mountain, and Highlands, as teachers and children ski or snowboard together. As we say, "No child left inside!"
The Power of Three


Strong, solid foundation: children become critical thinkers prepared for a lifetime of purposeful learning.



Commitment to creativity: the arts, an essential part of school life, foster the growing imagination.



Reslience & grit: children grow up at home in nature, building self-confidence and a sense of community.
