Interdenominational Christian school opens in Castle Rock

Open house scheduled for Nov. 7

Kingsway Academy was granted occupancy of a former gym in Castle Rock just three weeks before the private school was scheduled to open.

“People say it takes a village to raise a kid,” said Torrence Jackson, the school's director. “For us, it took a village to build a school.”

Serving grades pre-kindergarten through sixth, the private school opened its doors on Sept. 6 at 4760 Castleton Way, off I-25 and Founders Parkway. The school is interdenominational and represents more than 10 different Christian churches in the Castle Rock area, including Front Range Christian Church, Plum Creek Community Church and Calvary Castle Rock.

The school's curriculum is Jesus-centered. There is a strong focus on family, leadership, service to the community and critical thinking skills. Jackson strives to make available events and opportunities for his students' families to connect, he said.

With about 75 students, the school is still taking shape. Permanent walls — right now there are tall dividers — will be built over summer 2018. Jackson's goal is to have Kingsway Academy serve grades pre-K through 12.

Tuition ranges from $2,900 to $5,200 per child. Admission fee is $150, which will be waived if parents register at an upcoming open house for the public from 4 to 7 p.m. on Nov. 7.
