Loveland Classical Schools began as a dream two mothers shared in the spring of 2010. They met while volunteering in their sons’ preschool. Both women had been researching schools to determine the right fit for their children. It became explicitly clear that a classical education best met their needs and goals. Sadly, neither of their sons was able to win a seat in the lottery at the classical school of their choice. They soon learned that thousands of children were on charter school waiting lists in Northern Colorado. Their desire and passion for a classical school program for their children grew to include wanting to create more classical education options for all the children in their community. Thus began the journey to create Loveland Classical Schools.
After more than a year of hard work, the charter application was approved by the Thompson School District. With the help of hundreds of volunteers, experienced charter school experts, and countless others, LCS opened in September 2011.
