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.

Safe2Tell, a not-for-profit organization in Colorado, offers young people a way to report threatening behaviors or endangering activitites in a way that can keep them safe and anonymous. As the Safe2Tell Youtube Clip says, "Students know long before adults what is going on in and out of school." Please take a moment to check out this resource that Colorado provides for our youth.
