Colorado Springs Charter High School Staff & TeachersCIVA is a Colorado Springs Charter high school that offers smaller class size affording each student more individualized, personal attention from staff.  This ability to personally connect with each student is an outstanding feature that is enjoyed by staff and students alike, allowing CIVA to cultivate a nurturing, challenging learning environment.

CIVA staff is comprised of noteworthy professionals and academic scholars who have been trained in the technique of Quantum Learning, a brain-based learning technique focusing on how the brain encodes information.  They are a collaborative group that excel in both interpersonal skills and in their field of study which allows the students to feel confident in their teacher’s ability to challenge them academically. CIVA staff work with a single mindedness to instill knowledge and inspire students to attain their goals.
