    Teach to Shape Minds and Hearts


    Are you inspired by the idea of being an educator, but discouraged by the state of K-12 education in the U.S.? As a public charter school in Colorado Springs, The Classical Academy provides a unique, small class-size environment where teachers have the freedom to focus on what's most important: students and their development. 

    TCA is whole person focused, relationship based, idea centered, and classically oriented. Our community-wide emphasis on the pursuit of truth, beauty, and goodness sets us apart. We warmly invite you to apply to join our team.

  • About The Classical Academy

    Founded in 1997, TCA is Colorado's largest brick and mortar K-12 Charter School, educating more than 3,500 students in seven schools on three campuses with one vision. 

    Like all charter schools, TCA is a tuition-free, publicly funded school that is independently run. Open to all students, there are no test-in requirements. TCA’s charter is granted by Academy School District 20, one of the top performing school districts in Colorado. We value our positive relationship with ASD20. TCA rigorously upholds state standards while also cultivating a love of learning in our students. We are dedicated to small class sizes of 18-22 students.

    Staff and parents choose to be part of our school because they are invested in our shared mission and vision, which creates a strong community.
