Learn Outside the Bubble

As our mission states, ACDS is committed to helping children discover and develop their own sense of purpose and responsible citizenship. We want to foster the global literacy and 21st century skills your children will need in an increasingly complex and connected world. Here are some ways Aspen Country Day School students are "learning outside the bubble" of Aspen and our small valley. 

Partnership: World Leadership School

This well established, visionary organization has designed a custom program for our rising Eighth Graders. In June 2018, for the third year in a row, students will travel, together with teachers from ACDS and leaders from the World Leadership School, to the Sacred Valley of Peru. This Collaborative Leadership Program is a life-changing experience where students from different cultures learn and work together at a rural partner school in a carefully chosen location. It will improve our students' understanding of leadership and nurture their ability to see the world from different perspectives.

Partnership: Aspen Sister Cities

For many years, ACDS students have been among the most enthusiastic participants in the student exchanges that are organized by the Aspen Sister Cities committee. Each year, our Seventh Graders may apply to participate in homestay exchanges with children at schools in Bariloche, Argentina; Chamonix, France; Shimukappu, Japan; and Abetone, Italy.
