“I believe a school should be fun and rigorous in equal measure. Too rigorous and it won’t be fun. Too fun and you’ll never learn to spell rigorous.”
“I believe I have the confidence to stretch myself and not settle for what feels okay, but to question and seek different answers.”
“I believe an education at ACS is like a best friend. It walks with you, hand in hand, as the lessons of life unfold. It teaches you the art of thinking and discovery. It empowers you to be true to yourself, and it lasts a lifetime.”
“I believe that if I reach a high level of self-knowledge and inner peace, I can help to make the world just a little bit better.”
“I believe in learning through experience. I believe in exploration. I believe in science and art. In music. Outdoor education. Indoor education. Creativity. Adventure. Family. Beauty. Messiness. Curiosity. I believe in learning, always.”
Since 1970, Compass has provided progressive educational opportunities to people of the Roaring Fork Valley. A nonprofit organization, Compass operates Aspen Community School; its sister charter school, Carbondale Community School; and a private preschool, the Early Childhood Center. Compass employs a comptroller who manages the finances for the organization and its three schools, including those of the campaign. The campaign also contracts the services of a CPA who provides financial oversight to ensure that all campaign funds stay with the campaign, providing an additional checks and balance. So while 100% of campaign monies go through Compass, 0% of them go to Compass.
