Starting Monday, March 16, AcademyACL & Colorado Springs School District 11 will join El Paso County school districts in closing all school facilities at this time. Closure will be from March 16 through April 30. Please see our E-Learning Tab for ways to support students in a variety of Learning Opportunities. District 11 will reassess the situation as we get closer to that end date.

We provide an academic home for advanced & creative learning, and a place for unusually advanced, gifted skills to flourish. Our gifted education specialty uses a higher degree of difficulty and more complex curriculum designed for academically gifted learners.


We will create an academic home for advanced and creative learning, cultivate personal and standards-based excellence and leadership ability, and serve as a resource center for the gifted community of the Pikes Peak Region.


Our students and staff will investigate ideas and master advanced content, reflect upon their own progress, explore connections between disciplines, and lead others in positive ways to new heights in achievement and service to the community.


Students work in multi-age classrooms at highly challenging levels.

Community Connections

Our students, teachers, families, and community connect and grow together in many ways.

Gifted Resource Center

We support and advocate for gifted students, and share professional development, ideas, and awareness of needs.


Our creative and active Parent Teacher Organization supports families, staff, and students throughout the school year.
