The Beak September 2016

The year is off to a great start this fall at CIVA!

We are so excited to welcome back the returning students, to get to know our new students and to provide them all with another amazing year at CIVA!!  We are fortunate to have many international students enlivening our culture as well.

International Students

We are still looking for more host parents for more international students.  If you are able to assist with this, please contact Loriahn at CCI Greenheart, (719)761-5477 or  It is a life changing endeavor that will benefit you and your family for many years to come.

Fall OLE

We are going on our annual fall Outdoor Learning Expedition (OLE) from 9/13 - 9/15.  Click here for the packing list.  By way of review, students should come to school at the regular time on Tuesday; we will depart for Frontier Ranch that morning.  We will return to CIVA by 2:45 on Thursday.  Frontier Ranch is located at 22150 Co Rd 322, Buena Vista, (719)395-4111.

Students not attending OLE

Students should come to school during normal school hours.  They will work with teachers on assignments in the athenaeum and computer lab.  The regular school lunch program will not be available.  Students should bring lunches from home for those three days.


Our cross country team is thriving and Ultimate Frisbee games start soon.  Please see our website for dates and times for our cross country meets and Ultimate Frisbee games.
