I transferred my children from a public school to CMCA, and this has been the best move I could have ever made for my children's academic career. CMCA's curriculum is not for every student, it is rigorus, challenging and hands down the best! The students are taught a standard, and to expect nothing less. The are grouped according to their abilities, enabling students to work and learn together that are on the same level- instead of keeping the more advanced students at the level of the lowest child or expecting the lowest child to perform at the highest child's level. That being said, the expectation of "if the child hasn't learned then the teacher hasn't taught," is strictly adhered, and our rating of #1 from the Colorado Department of Education, several years running, attests. Yes, there can be an exceptional amount of homework, but no more than I experienced as a child growing up. The homework just further cements what the kids have learned in class. By far the best school I could have ever wanted for my children! Proud CMCA and Vanguard School Parent, Kristen Coderre

As a former teacher at CMCA and now a parent, I am thankful for how this school is constantly paying attention to each child's needs by constant consistent recordkeeping. I enjoy seeing my own child so encouraged to work hard and do her best.

I love CMCA because of the charater that it teaches and expects from every student, teacher and administrator. The staff models integrity evey day as it imparts knowledge to its students. It is a pleasure to walk through the halls of this school and see the learning and love that takes place in each and every classroom. Great job, CMCA!

The systematic approach to everything these children do couldn't be more clear and thoughtful. There is nothing that slips through the cracks because the curriculum is so clear. We love this school!!!

I have been amazed and pleased at how well my 5 year old is absorbing and learning so much in the CMCA academic environment. The teachers have been welcoming and are really talented in teaching for each child's learning level.

I am very impressed with CMCA's curriculum. At Kindergarten, kids are taught to write in cursive, in History - they studied American heroes, Geography, Science. I couldn't believe that Kindergarten can be taught to solve Math problems under time pressured. Yes, they are taught to solve 40 questions on addition and multiplication for 3 minutes. These are just a few of the wonderful things my daughter acquired from CMCA's Kindergarten. Now, that she's in 1st Grade, the curriculum is more challenging. As far as teachers and Mgt are concerned, all of them are very friendly and supportive to kids. I could go on and on with all the positives about this school. If you want to hone your kids to excel, this is the school to be!

CMCA is wonderful! Where else can a 2nd grader read books by Laura Ingalls Wilder, learn long division, study the U.S. Constitution, recite Longfellow, and examine the structure of cells under a microscope?

The school expects a lot of the kids. However they also give the kids the tools they need to exceed. I live in district 12 and could send my children to one of the excellent elementary schools. However I don't think it would compare.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted October 7, 2010

There is nothing comparable to CMCA. I could not imagine sending my daughter elsewhere. The positive energy within the school is electrifying. I particularly like the fact that the school is much more diverse than the other schools in District 12. And thanks to ability grouping in reading, math and spelling, my daughter is always challenged -- never bored or overwhelmed. But most important, CMCA doe not get fixated on CSAP tests as other schools do with their extra classes in reading and math leaving no time for anything else. CMCA, instead, espouses a very broad, rich curriculum that includes music, art, poetry, history and science.

The mission of Cheyenne Mountain Charter Academy and The Vanguard School is to help guide students in the development of their character and academic potential through academically rigorous, content-rich educational programs. My daughter has attended the school since kindergarten, she is currently in 8th grade. She has developed into a very caring, compassionate, loving girl that will achieve all her life goals with the lessons she has learned while attending CMCA. My son is in first grade and he is a delight to everyone and smart as a whip! We went on vacation and we took some summer homework with us; family members were watching him do his homework and could not believe what he had already learned in Kindergarten. The school is tops in CSAP's and SAT's. CMCA uses the Direct Instruction technique and it works. The kids are always on task and always motivated to succeed. CMCA is a uniform school which helps cut down on distractions (bullying). If you want to see the perfect example of the statement "No child left behind", review the records of CMCA's achievements. Google it, You will be impressed!!!

Our daughter loves being at CMCA . The quality of education is excellent. The teachers and principals listen and respond to our child's problems and needs. Couldn't ask for a better school.

We love this school because it provides our child with a great education. The teachers are great. There is a great open door policy so you have any questions the teachers and staff are always there to answer any questions. I like how my child is learning how to be a great person along with an outstanding education.

Our 1st Grader Loves CMCA. Her teachers are great and we feel blessed to have found them. Do your own research. No one school can be all things to all people, right! We visited Kindergarten last year & compared other district 12 and the private Colorado Springs School (CSS). CMCA will Prepare your children for success with a great foundation and instill passion for life long learning. I researched just the number of comments at all of district 12 elementary schools in March of 2010 and in total they were less than just CMCA alone. CMCA is great for us. Best Regards, Proud CMCA parents.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
