Embracing the Full Range of Human Experience

In today’s merciless and instantaneous global economy, anything that can be automated or outsourced to a cheaper labor market will be, or it already has. For our future generations to succeed, we will need to reinforce those things that are uniquely human: aesthetic and human experiences which bring meaning, beauty, and purpose to the world. We must educate our students so they are all able to engage with and appreciate the arts and creative design, support them in becoming life-long creators, and expand opportunities to acquire new languages.

Theory of Action

IF all educators create the conditions and provide the space for the expansion and promotion of passion-inspired learning, where a student is exposed to the many components of a well-rounded and comprehensive education,
THEN students will have the authentic opportunity to demonstrate the application of their learning through human-centered authentic tasks.


  • By 2024 500 students will graduate with the Colorado and Jeffco Seal of Biliteracy.

  • By 2021 100 new opportunities that embrace the human experience will be available annually for students to participate in the areas of: arts, creative design, world languages and culture, and health and fitness.
