AXL’s Mission

AXL is a college preparatory school of choice for girls and boys. AXL will empower all students to master rigorous academic standards, become skillful and resourceful problem-solvers, and develop the character and love of learning they need to succeed in college and beyond.

All college preparatory schools expect students to excel in a rigorous academic program. AXL asks more: that students discover how they learn, that they take intellectual delight in their education, and that they gain the courage and integrity to negotiate the futures they create.

AXL Academy engages students in a challenging program where all core subjects — as well as technology, fine arts, physical education, and Spanish — are integrated into deep investigations of real-world issues. We call these Expeditions, and they connect classroom content to everyday life. Students develop the power to think, the confidence to act, and a sense of responsibility for one another.

Key features of AXL’s revolutionary approach include:

Active Teaching & Learning
Students learn by doing and by demonstrating what they’ve learned.  With training from Expeditionary Learning™, AXL teachers design hands-on projects, real life problems, and frequent outside-the-classroom expeditions that make students active participants in their own education.

All of our curriculum begins with Colorado Content Standards, but we go beyond them to involve students in meaningful ways in the larger community.

Strong School Culture
Our active learning and strong school culture foster high academic achievement, character development, and social equity for all students. At AXL, we educate students to thrive in the larger community through innovative school structures and proven instructional practices.

Students are organized into separate divisions for girls and boys, each tailored to support academic achievement using the same curriculum. Students remain with the same team of teachers for more than one year, which helps build trust and caring relationships.

AXL students wear simple uniforms to ensure respect for self and others, diminish social stress, and develop a shared community identity.

Our prek-8 model provides a safe, stable, and nurturing school in which students know what is expected of them academically and personally and know they have the individualized support to reach their goals.

College Preparation
All college prep schools expect students to excel in a rigorous academic program. But AXL asks more: that students discover how they learn, that they take intellectual delight and responsibility in their education, and that they gain the courage and integrity to negotiate the futures they create. AXL is committed to preparing all students to succeed in college and careers of their choosing.

AXL provides excellent teachers to guide and support each student in meeting high expectations for achievement. This is possible with our ongoing, high quality professional development.

Extended Schedule
AXL operates year-round, with three short breaks rather than one long summer vacation. The school day runs from 8:00am – 4:00pm with extended opportunities to learn and play until 6:00pm.

Authentic Assessment
Teachers will use a variety of evaluation tools — including Colorado-mandated tests, nationally standardized tests, authentic assessments of students’ knowledge and skills, and portfolios of students’ work over time — to monitor students’ progress toward, world class standards of achievement. Performance data from these assessments will drive AXL’s ongoing curriculum development, training for teachers, and individualized supports for students’ learning.

Family & Students
We are committed to recruiting a diverse student population that reflects the richness of culture, ethnicity, language, and socio-economics of Aurora. The school’s diversity creates an environment in which students can learn from one another, learn to respect one another, and develop the skills needed for success in a diverse world.
