About

Desiderata School has been serving students and the community since 1989. We are a nationally recognized and accredited non-traditional private school specializing in small-group instruction and utilize a wide variety of trusted curriculum sources and publishers. Our 10:1 maximum student to instructor ratio, combined with our proficiency based model, makes our programs ideal for advanced or gifted students, students with challenges, and everyone in between.

 

What this means for your child:

  • Homework is not required.  

  • Students who can complete coursework in under traditionally allotted time-frames may receive credit and move on. 

  • Students who struggle in a subject and require more time to meet mastery levels may take the time to do so.  

  • Students who participate in community activities, such as local sports team, and other learning-worthy activities, may also calculate those hours towards their schooling requirements.

Accreditation

Desiderata School is accredited by The National Commission for Exceptional Schools.

The NCES is recognized as an accreditation agency by The Federal Department of Education as well as The Colorado Department of Education.

The State Board of Education in Colorado cannot accredit private schools. Desiderata School is therefore accredited by an independent accrediting agency. Desiderata chose the NCES due to its flexibility in development of non- traditional programs while still maintaining high standards of learning for all students of its member schools.
