After 6 years, Ambleside at Skylark has grown into a strong, vibrant community with a K-Ready program, Kindergarten - Eighth grade and an Arrowsmith program for students with learning difficulties. Thanks to the generosity of countless parents, faculty, staff and friends who have contributed resources, children throughout the Roaring Fork Valley have experienced this extraordinary education. Now it is time for our community to step forward and support the school to put down permanent roots.
Ambleside at Skylark is at an exciting and important juncture. For the past 6 years, we have rented classrooms from Mountain View Church in Glenwood Springs with significant growth in enrollment. Purchasing a campus of our own will provide a permanent facility for our children and for generations to come to continue to have access to this one of a kind education! The vision of an expanded campus increases our ability to reach more students and impact more families in the Western Slope of Colorado. We love our community and are so excited to be expanding our influence in the private sector.
Ambleside at Skylark has a vision to see generations of children come to know not just education, but to know the power they possess through a living education. It is our goal to aid parents in the upbringing of their children with the knowledge of Christian truth and understanding of God’s ways, in the hope of lifelong, faithful and thoughtful service. In doing so, we endeavor to grow them in grace and humility, rightly discerning truth in all endeavors of their existence. Children are not merely people we seek to just educate but to view as a whole person, created by God to have success in life through the foundation of education.
In 2014, because of the heart of a couple and the vision of two families, Mountain View Church of Glenwood Springs became the first facility to house our school. Through the growing partnership with families and community members we are providing a living education for children all across the Western Slope of Colorado.
In 2016, to bring an increased value and more educational opportunities to our school, we partnered with the Arrowsmith School in Toronto, Canada to provide a program specifically for children with learning difficulties.
