Charter Schools

Phone: 720-972-6959

Charter schools are tuition-free public schools. Charter schools are semi-autonomous schools of choice, authorized and operated under a charter contract between the charter school’s board and the local board of education. Parents interested in enrolling in any Adams 12 Five Star Schools' authorized charter schools should contact the school directly to discuss application and enrollment procedures.

  • Maintaining high expectations for student achievement and overall school performance
  • Protecting student and public interests

The District’s Office of Charter Partnerships maintains quality charter school authorizing principles and supports charter school success through collaboration and annual performance monitoring across multiple areas, including:    

  • Academic growth and achievement
  • Financial accountability and transparency 
  • Organizational performance, including effective governance practices and other opportunities for parent involvement.
  • Positive, safe school climate and culture
