CIVA High School is a college preparatory public charter school with a unique arts emphasis and international program.  CIVA's small class sizes and supportive and safe atmosphere provide a one-of-a-kind experience where teachers know students by name, and where students respect and care for one another.

Authorized by Colorado Springs District 11, CIVA students are thoroughly prepared for collegiate success when they graduate.  CIVA limits its yearly enrollment to ensure we provide each student with a small and safe environment that fosters tremendous academic and character growth.

CIVA Offers:

  • Advanced Placement courses
  • A wide variety of Arts electives
  • Online college courses
  • Character Development
  • Athletics and Activities
  • Average class size of 15

CIVA's pedagogical approach is gleaned from Quantum Learning.  Quantum Learning is a brain-based research model, which has resulted in amazing academic and artistic accomplishments for our students.  While also building the values of sound character growth with our emphasis on 9 keys of success. 

CIVA offers our students small personal classrooms with professional teachers who specialize in creating engaging and challenging lessons.  Our dedication to small classrooms provides the teachers with the context to truly understand the students in order to orchestrate enhanced and rigorous growth.

Perhaps the best aspect of CIVA is the dynamic peer culture.  It is the students that make CIVA such a safe and comfortable place to learn and develop.   When students enjoy a healthy community they encourage one another to live up to their best regarding academics, the arts, and athletics.  Our welcoming culture is enriched by our focus on international students.  Each year CIVA hosts over 10% of our students from other countries.
