Welcome To The Vanguard School


Mr. Colin Mullaney at the Vanguard charter school in Colorado SpringsThank you for visiting The Vanguard School website.  I think you’ll be excited about what you find here.  We’ve worked hard to make this a useful tool to learn about the fundamentals of our school as well as provide up-to-date information on all of the many happenings at Vanguard.

Please take time to look at our curricular program and how it is aligned from our College Kindergarten through our twelfth grade.  Our Core Knowledge Curriculum in our elementary school transitions smoothly through our junior high program into our classical liberal arts and sciences program in our high school.  We have high expectations of excellence in character and academic achievement for each of our students, and every year we see them grow more than we even anticipated.  The gains our students make over the course of their time here prepare them for admission to and success in the college of their choice, as well as for success in life. 

We have a proven track record of the very highest levels of achievement due to our carefully selected curriculum, our focus on individual students, and an outstanding professional staff that is always looking for ways to improve.  We are currently in our twenty-first year of operations and in May 2016 celebrated our seventh graduating class from our high school.  Last year's forty-seven graduates represented and honored our school through their many awards and accomplishments, including an appointment to the U.S. Air Force Academy.  We’re very proud of our work in helping our students achieve these and many other accomplishments, including over $6.7 million in scholarships among last year's forty-seven graduates. 

As you peruse this site, you’ll also find information about our many extra-curricular offerings at all levels of our school.  Our students learn teamwork, sportsmanship, and character, not to mention development of healthy social relationships with peers and adults in the process while enjoying these many offerings.  Please note the details on how to get your child involved in some of these sports, arts, and academic activities that are available to our students.

Finally, you’ll find the contact information for our staff members in case you have further interest or questions regarding the information provided on this site.  Any of these various staff members would be glad to assist you.

Thank you again for your interest in and support of The Vanguard School. We’re excited to share the many outstanding accomplishments of our students and staff.
