About Loveland Classical

Loveland Classical Schools is a K-12 classical and Core Knowledge tuition-free charter school in Loveland, Colorado. Currently serving nearly 700 students across northern Colorado, LCS is chartered and accredited through the Thompson School District. The school defines a classical education by great works, great teaching and great people and is widely known for its unique approach to teaching elementary students. Commonly referred to as departmentalization, elementary students directly benefit from mathematicians teaching mathematics, scientists teaching science, historians teaching history, and so on rather than one instructor per classroom teaching all core subjects. This method constantly brings new passion, expertise and energy to each class.

  1. Loveland Classical Elementary School,
    a K - 5th Core Knowledge and classical school
  2. Loveland Classical Middle School,
    a 6 - 8th grade Core Knowledge and classical school
  3. Loveland Classical High School,
    a 9 - 12th grade classical liberal arts high school
