Principal's Message

I am excited to announce that we are in the process of transitioning into a New Classical Academy at Vivian for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. Being part of the redesign of Vivian is a once in a lifetime experience, and I'm honored to be the principal to lead this work.

New Classical Academy at Vivian is such an amazing opportunity for our current and new students and their families for so many reasons. At Classical Academy at Vivian we will offer a traditional rigorous academic program that builds character and academics through high structure and discipline. We will pair lessons of history with skills outlined in Jeffco Generations to create active and engage members in the community.

New Classical Academy at Vivian will be a unique school community that fosters a diverse, welcoming and inclusive community using a traditional classical educational model with a modern twist.

We are dedicated to student achievement through rigorous learning opportunities, and high expectations to ensure students learn, grow and succeed academically, socially and emotionally. We value the strong partnerships between students, teachers, parents, staff, and the community.

Please come and learn about New Classical Academy at Vivian. We will offer several informational nights, and our first one will be held December 12th at 6:00 p.m. Sign up to attend our informational nights. If you are unable to attend, please call our main office at (303)982-7670 to schedule an informational meeting with me.
