What We Believe

OUR VISION

Every student in Colorado is prepared and unafraid to succeed in school, work, and life, and ready to take on the challenges of today, tomorrow, and beyond.

OUR MISSION

Accelerate educational improvement and innovation across Colorado.

WE BELIEVE HEALTHY SCHOOLS ARE NOT JUST ABOUT PHYSICAL FITNESS

We know that children need to feel safe and secure at school. They need to be nourished and well rested. Students need positive peer and adult role models, and should feel comfortable asking for help when they need it.

Watch our video on what makes a truly healthy school.  

WE BELIEVE LEARNING IS NOT ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL

We know brain cells don’t turn off when the school day ends. We understand that to reach their full potential, students need to be inspired by customized approaches to learning that meet their unique needs.

Watch our video about expanding innovation in education.

WE BELIEVE IN INNOVATIVE IDEAS

We believe in the power of doing. We fund initiatives, work to increase capacity and create momentum for successful strategies. We constantly evaluate what works and what doesn’t in order to get the best information into the hands of our educators and the minds of our students.

WE BELIEVE IN SHARING WHAT WE LEARN

Our role as a thought partner and partner with the Colorado Department of Education and as a catalyst for innovation in schools and districts has garnered national attention and interest from several states considering the creation of similar organizations. We are excited to find ways to pass on the good work we are doing with others.
