Mission / Vision / Values

Our Vision
To provide the highest quality k-12 college preparatory education in Colorado

Our Mission
To help students prepare for and succeed in college and their career by providing a Core Knowledge foundation that establishes the key values of lifelong learning, allowing them to recognize and to develop their unique and
innovative ideas.

Values
Based on Ralph Waldo Emerson’s value of Self-Reliance, Collegiate has developed four “Core Values” to guide our students toward and on the path of being self-reliant. Students at Collegiate are encouraged to embody these values everyday while in school, but are also expected to live these values outside the walls of the school to become true community leaders. 


Our Core Values

Integrity: Collegiate students do the right thing regardless of whether anybody sees them. This value goes beyond honesty to require sincerity in communicating and living.

Perseverance: Our students see their problems as challenges, hurdles to overcome. They see their problems as weights to build strong character. By shifting the way they think about problems, Collegiate students change their
thought patterns to improve their attitude and perception of a given situation.

Ownership: Collegiate students are held accountable and responsible for present and future actions. They take pride in the work they do and are honest with adults, peers and community members. When their work is strong, they
showcase it, and when their work lags, they improve it by owning the notion that we can always do just a little better.

Quality: Our students follow the rule that no matter how great or small, one always puts his or her best effort forward. The notion of doing quality work is a confidence builder that improves our reputation with ourselves, our teachers, and our peers.
