Thank you for your interest in Frassati Catholic Academy! We are excited about the prospect of including you and your children in our Frassati family where students will grow in their faith and develop a love of learning.
From preschool through eighth grades, students will enjoy rich, thematic units of study within a classical curriculum where they will learn, create, and build the foundations for higher thought.
Infused with the teachings of the Gospels, a Frassati Catholic Academy classical education ignites a child’s fire for learning and activates a curiosity about our God-created world. Students become masters of language who read and think well, write eloquently and persuasively, and are well-prepared for the next phases of their lives: college, careers, vocations and heaven.
The core of our curriculum includes Latin, History, English Grammar, Literature, Mathematics, and Science, supported by weekly Music, Art and Art History, and Physical Education classes. All subjects include study of the theologians, writers, philosophers, mathematicians, scientists, and art masters who built the great thought and culture that founded Western Civilization.
A school within the Archdiocese of Denver’s Catholic school system, Frassati Catholic Academy enjoys participation in archdiocesan activities including the Intermediate and Advanced Spelling Bees, the Chess Tournament, the Archdiocesan Speech Association for competitive speaking, the Catholic Schools Art Show, and the Catholic Schools Athletic League for team sports, which includes basketball, volleyball, baseball, flag football, futsol (indoor soccer), and cross country.
Inspired by our namesake, Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati, we aim to instill in our students a love of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, a spirit of service to others, and a joy about the Catholic faith. As a school community that prays and worships together, every day begins and ends in prayer and includes special devotions. Weekly Friday Masses are celebrated throughout the school year. Frassati Catholic Academy is blessed to have a cohort of priests from area parishes who serve the pastoral needs of the school.
May God bless you and your family!
The Archdiocese of Denver has over 150 years of experience running quality, faithful schools throughout northern Colorado. Frassati Academy is the latest addition to an already robust and diverse network of archdiocesan schools. The school benefits from the reliable leadership of our archbishop and his leadership team, particularly the archdiocesan Office of Catholic Schools, and the collective wisdom of hundreds of experienced education professionals currently working in our school system.
