While the world has changed since our founding, one concept has been a constant: Graland is faithful to the enduring aspects of its mission while seeking new ways to promote intellectual excellence and strong character. We inspire students to pursue excellence with passion and intent - academically, creatively and in their personal growth as engaged citizens and thoughtful leaders. We are constantly looking for ways to improve our program and keep it relevant for the next generation of students. Guided by our mission, values, and strategic plan, we go to extraordinary lengths to give children the best education possible.

Colorado is a nice blend of Midwestern friendliness and the easy-going West Coast, and our style is typically casual chic. In addition to respecting the land and each other, there are always people willing to help newcomers try something that is uniquely Colorado (pronounced Cah-lo-RAD-oh by the locals!).
There are numerous musical venues, including the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater, live theatres, museums, and art galleries that bolster our thriving cultural scene. Restaurants led by award-winning chefs range from refined French and classic delis to new-style Southern and Middle Eastern, while mouthwatering microbreweries have put Denver on the map. Sports fans will find top teams in basketball, baseball, football, soccer, lacrosse, and hockey. Denver is also home to the University of Denver and the University of Colorado-Denver, and the vibrant college towns of Boulder and Ft. Collins are nearby.
Our close proximity to the mountains allows Coloradans to enjoy snow sports like skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing and sledding and year-round cycling, hiking, running, and tennis. There are 5,000+ acres of trails, parks, golf courses and playgrounds.
