Welcome to Morgridge Academy. We are glad you are here.
Morgridge Academy is a free, Colorado Department of Education approved facility school which serves children in kindergarten through eighth grade who have been diagnosed with a chronic illness. Morgridge Academy is the only school of its kind on a medical campus in the country, and its mission is to provide a safe, friendly, and healthy school environment committed to whole-child development. The students who attend Morgridge Academy have diagnoses that include severe asthma and allergies, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, HIV/AIDS, atopic dermatitis (eczema), juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, interstitial lung disease, cystic fibrosis, and muscular disorders. With a dedicated team of teachers, nurses, a child advocate, school counselor, P.E. teacher, and Fine Arts teacher, the students receive a quality education all while learning to manage their illness.
We are committed to building a community that offers the highest level of care and individual instruction for students.
At the end of the school year, Ms. Morrissey will be leaving Morgridge Academy to start a new chapter in her life with her husband Paul in California. We are so sad to see her go! Here are a few words from Ms. Morrissey:
The last 30 years have been a very amazing part of my life! I have met some incredible students and families; I have worked with some fabulous teachers! My life has been enriched and so blessed by each and every life intersecting my own, and I hope that I have done the same for others. I celebrate our students’ accomplishments, their struggles and steps in learning, and I hope to hear of many more achievements. Thank you to each family, each parent, each student for allowing me to work with you and for sharing your life with me. Be assured that I treasure you and will keep you very close in my heart and thoughts!
We’ll be in touch…Love you all…Mary (Morrissey) Renner
