Choosing a high school

Finding the next "Right Fit"

Secondary school placement counseling is a service that Aspen Country Day School offers to all families – part of our goal of preparing ACDS graduates not just for high school, but for lives of meaning and purpose.

ACDS graduates are ready for the high schools of their dreams -- their highest and best next step, whatever it may be.

Country Day has a strong, multi-generational track record in this area. Every year ACDS Eighth Graders venture forth to our local public high schools, Colorado Rocky Mountain School in Carbondale, other boarding schools, and independent day schools farther afield. Over the years, we have built strong relationships with the representatives of boarding and day schools nationwide, and our annual Boarding School Fair has strengthened awareness of ACDS.
