LAS is made up of four divisions;
Early Education -
Our EE department is comprised of creche through Kindergarten, typically ages 3 months through 5 years.
LAS offers an American curriculum which challenges students to think critically and solve real-world problems.
(AERO) American Education Reaches Out and Colorado State Standards are used as frameworks for consistency across all grade levels. Our curriculum development is tailored to the international student with their unique life experiences.
LAS is also a candidate school for accreditation from International Bacclaureate® (IB) requirements for authorization
English as a second language
The English Language Learners (ELLs) Program assists students in their core curriculum studies and helps them improve their English language skills. Students who are selected for the program are usually below grade-level in their English proficiency and need the extra one-on-one attention to ensure that they are successful academically at LAS.
Depending on the ELL’s level of English proficiency, students will attend classes 3 to 4 times per week for about 45 minutes at each session.
Academic Support is designed to meet the diverse needs reflected in the student population by providing specialized instruction and advisory services to eligible students. LAS strives to provide the highest quality education, irrespective of disability, meeting students at their point of need and teaching them in the least restrictive environment.
Provision is also made for students who do not have an identified learning disability but need some extra support in the classroom. These services could include working with an aide, or working on study or organizational skills. Internship opportunities are also available for high school students to have a practical "real world" hands on experience outside the classroom.
Academic and University Counseling
LAS provides comprehensive university counseling that begins in the eighth grade and continues through until graduation from high school. Both students and parents are provided with the best tools to navigate the complicated and competitive process of searching and applying for the right university.
Our school counselor help equip LAS students with critical decision making skills and to develop healthy interpersonal skills. Comprehensive academic guidance and emotional support is available by offering a forum to address current issues young people face such as alcohol and drug abuse, bullying, anxiety, loneliness, and peer pressure.
At Chapel, we encourage student participation in the leading of worship and the service format.
We have strong links with visiting pastors, local missionaries, and creative artists who connect powerfully with our students. It is important to develop students as leaders.
Chapel is formally planned and presented on the last Wednesday of every month. Bible classes are part of the curriculum and bible studies are every Monday for lower school and every Wednesday for upper school students.
Our mission is for students to find a real and personal relationship with Christ through the power of His word, our witness of authentic faith, and a demonstration of the Father's love.
Our prayer is to empower students to be all that God created them to be by building on the foundations of the Bible, prayer, accountability, and integrity. We help to stir the gifts that God has placed within students to fulfill their calling and impact the world.
