A founder of Aspen Academy, a private, not-for-profit Denver independent school serving students Pre K-8, Lynda believes in education that can make the world a better place. Having completed terms as Board President, Lynda now serves as Chief Operating Officer. Aspen Academy’s accelerated learning program emphasizes character and leadership development centered around its only rule: “Be kind.”
Aspen Academy differentiates itself from other Denver prep schools, private schools and gifted and talented programs through its core commitments to:
• Develop and perpetuate a true love of learning through personal instruction and instructional methodology. Through a personalized method of learning, students learn the scope and breadth of their potential, not just the curriculum at hand.
• Character and leadership development. Superior character improves the outlook and capabilities of the person. Confident, capable, and caring people make the world a better place. Aspen Academy nurtures the mind, yes, but also the heart--“Be kind.”--of students.
• Service learning. Through the application of academic knowledge in the context of community service, students become active, productive citizens who make a difference.
