About the Company
The American Indian Academy of Denver (AIAD) is a community-based, open enrollment, public charter school that serves grades 6-12 (currently enrolling grades 6-8 for the 2020-21 school year). All students are welcome, and the school is specifically designed to address the unmet needs of American Indian and Latino students in the Denver metro area. AIAD’s model is Indigenized STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math taught through a American Indian principles and ways of knowing). As Indigenous people of North America, we have been critical thinkers, scientists, artists, and innovators since the beginning of time. It is our intention to help our students carry that cultural legacy into the 21st century! AIAD believes that our cultural strengths can provide the foundation that will allow ALL students to succeed.
