About NRCCS

THE NRCCS VISION:
North Routt is a place of learning inhabited by people who treasure our countryside and its historical significance, with a commitment to the children and the community (both local and global). In this special setting we see each individual achieving his/her highest potential in a positive (can-do), goal-oriented, nurturing, and secure atmosphere.

THE NRCCS MISSION:
To teach our children to spread their wings and soar like eagles.

CURRICULUM:
The NRCCS uses a “place-based” approach to education that is closely aligned with the Colorado Content Standards. Place-based education is rooted in experiential learning and employs practical outdoor experiences to ground learning in a sense of environment.

Our commitment to experiential learning is supplemented by two curricular approaches: Expeditionary Learning Outward Bound (ELOB) and Service Learning. For example, student-owned projects enable the students at NRCCS to learn academic subjects while connecting to the people and places in our community. All three of these educational programs encourage our students to use their “place” as a learning resource, incorporating direct learning experiences into core curricular activities.

North Routt Community Charter School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability or age in its programs or activities.
