The Peak School is a progressive, coeducational college preparatory middle and high school nestled in high peaks of Summit County, Colorado.


"What I love about Peak is how supportive and invested they are in their students, in and out of school. Peak is a one of a kind, from their incredible and unique sense of community, to the amazing effort that the teachers invest. Peak is a school that cares."

"Our jobs as parents is to prepare our young adults to take their positions as global citizens and leaders in a world that is increasingly more complex. For this reason, we chose The Peak School. The Peak community provides exceptional and challenging education experiences facilitated by dedicated teachers committed to facilitating a unique and differentiating 'whole student' learning philosophy and process."

"I love the small classes and amazing teachers. This school makes me feel comfortable and free to open up to the community. You will find yourself making amazing friends in the middle and upper school. Peak is unique to me because it follows principles that can help you in the real world."


The Peak School is more than a school; it is a community of families, educators, and residents of Summit County all working toward the same goal-to ignite a passion for learning in our students and to develop their individual identities in order to become informed and engaged citizens. As a progressive independent school, our focus is on a personalized education delivered through challenging curriculum and taught by talented, experienced teachers. Located in Frisco, Colorado, The Peak School serves middle school and high school students in grades 6 - 12.

Background Statement

LATE IN 2011, several parents and educators met weekly around a kitchen table and developed the idea to bring an independent school option to Summit County. Even with good public schools nearby, these individuals recognized that one size does not fit all. They were tired of losing dedicated staff and close personal friends who left the community in search of an educational alternative for their middle and high school students. At that table, an idea was nurtured and developed and The Peak School was born.
