Enduring reverence for children and childhood
We recognize childhood as a stage in development and believe it should not be rushed. Students at Spacious Skies are immersed in developmentally appropriate programs and lessons when taking into consideration age, interest, and ability.
Steadfast respect for parents as educational partners
We look at families through a strengths-based lens and demonstrate empathy and understanding in all our interactions. We partner with families in meaningful ways that serve to enhance students’ educational experiences and ensure their success.
Profound trust in teachers as professionals
Teachers at Spacious Skies work collaboratively and purposefully toward increased student learning and school improvement. Teachers are leaders of improved instruction and are designers of curriculum and lessons.
Deep understanding of how children learn
We are dedicated to ongoing study of children and how they learn. We employ methods that are appropriate for children and the content.

As students engage in relevant lessons, they will enhance their personal, social, and intellectual capacities. With our child-centered focus and broad-based curriculum, Spacious Skies is a much-needed option for families in the Pikes Peak region.
We are currently accepting Intent to Enroll (ITE) forms. Parents must request enrollment into SSCS by filling out an online ITE form. Submitting this ITE does not obligate the student to attend Spacious Skies, nor does it guarantee admission.
