We are a college prep school that balances academic rigor with a unique emphasis on the visual & performance arts.
Our inclusive and accepting culture is created by our mission to develop essential qualities such as work ethic needed for academic success and strength of character demonstrated through respect and compassion towards others.
Our welcoming culture is enriched by our focus on international students. Yearly, CIVA hosts over 10-15% of our students from other countries.
Our atmosphere and student body have a much different presentation than most high schools in Colorado Springs. We encourage you to come check us out in person.
Founded in 1997 CIVA Charter High School is authorized by Colorado Springs District 11. Over the years, CIVA has become the highest performing high school in Colorado Springs District 11 and we have been voted Best of Colorado Springs several years in a row.
