Give your child a great start to his or her education. Build social skills and classroom readiness in a caring and nurturing Christian environment.  Cook Inlet Academy’s Preschool program provides a strong foundation for your child’s education.


The years from Kindergarten through 5th grade are vital to your child’s development. These impressionable years are the perfect time to help your child learn as much as they can in a nurturing and educationally stimulating environment. With an 18:1 student-teacher ratio, our teachers can deliver the best educational experience to each of their students.

Even from a young age, we believe in providing nourishing education for the whole person. We teach our elementary students traditional school subjects, creative and art courses, as well as faith formation, in a way that stimulates their imagination and helps to feed their sense of discovery and creativity.


Middle and High School offer such important educational experiences for each student. We prepare students for college and for life outside of school.

At CIA, we provide not only the essential academic knowledge to achieve success beyond high school, but also the real-life skills required to truly excel in life. Our classrooms are fun, yet respectful; exciting, yet stimulating; and faith-based, yet academically rigorous. With an 18:1 student-teacher ratio, our teachers can deliver the best educational experience to each of their students.

We also offer our high school students the opportunity to take college courses through Colorado Christian College.
These credits count both for high school and college credit.

High school students are required to take 25 credits, including 4 years of Bible, and Algebra I for graduation.
We encourage 4 years of Math and Science.


College Prep

At Cook Inlet Academy, college preparation is one of the premier services we offer to students and their parents. CIA students receive several hid reds of thousands in college scholarships each year.  We believe properly preparing students to move beyond our academy and achieve their dreams at the school of their choice is one of the best ways we can help them build a successful life that glorifies God.  

We offer challenging coursework to our high school students in all subjects, especially math, writing, reading, and faith studies. Our small class size and interactive teaching methods help our students to truly understand and internalize the concepts they learn, better preparing them for college classes. Frequent standardized testing ensures students are always on track.  High school students have opportunities to earn college credit in a variety of courses. We also provide career advising sessions, college applications and scholarships assistance .
