SLAM is a New Innovative Option in Education
Tuition Free Charter School
Grades K - 12
Proposed to open in fall 2019
On November 8th the State Board of Education denied SLAM's appeal by a 5-2 vote. Although this was a setback, we are still moving forward and are searching all avenues on how to open SLAM Colorado. We want to thank everyone who came to support us during the appeal and who has been continuously working hard to bring the vision of SLAM to Colorado’s students!
SLAM offers a sports integrated learning environment for students in grades K-12. The integrated curriculum offers students opportunities and exploration in Sports Medicine, Digital Media/Sports Television Production, Marketing, Sports Security, Entertainment/Management and more. The School’s sports integrated instructional model is based on the philosophy of the three R’s: Rigor, Relevance, and Relationships in the learning process.
In order to produce college bound and career-oriented graduates, the founders of SLAM Colorado believe that the School must deliver Rigor and Relevance while cultivating Relationships in the educational program and community. These attributes, incorporated in the specific sports instructional strategies in the academics, in addition to differentiated instructional techniques in the core curriculum, will serve to achieve the school’s mission.
