About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Colorado Provost Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Colorado Provost Academy had 45 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Colorado average is 17 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Colorado Provost Academy Reviews
My daughters love this school. It's up to state-standards and very organized. My youngest daughter was looking forward to graduating early and heading out to college, and Provost has handled that very well as far as setting up her schedule and making sure she knows when each part needs to be completed. The teachers respond quickly to both me and my daughters questions, and they are very flexible when it comes to setting up tutoring times. My older daughter that's going here went to regular school for 2 1/2 years before deciding she was sick of it all. She switched to Provost near the end of first quarter and her teachers were very helpful in getting her caught up. I also find it great that if you're student wants to take courses at a local college while still taking classes at Provost, they will pay for $1000/semester, which is a great way to get your college-bound student a head start. They'll also allow students to participate in electives and clubs at local public high schools. Provost is one of the best choices for online high schools.
I was sick of the drama, heavy textbooks, and bus rides of regular high school, and the fact that I couldn't get ahead in any of my classes. After reading a little bit about online high schools, Provost definitely felt like the way to go. Your courses are on-demand, meaning you can do them anytime, anywhere! I'm working on graduating early and Provost is so accommodating to that! I recommend this to every high school student, especially ones who want to get ahead, work at their own pace, and on their own schedule. As far as meeting other kids goes, there are regular get together's all across the state of Colorado organized by Provost, so you'll always find people near you! I've met students from Denver, Colorado Springs, Littleton, Fairplay, Durango, literally everywhere! Teachers can be reached by phone, text, and e-mail if you have questions...I love it here!
