Desiderata School is an accredited, private school in Longmont, Colorado.

We specialize in treating students as individuals and have administered self-paced, proficiency-based programs for over 20 years. Our personalized programs offer valuable opportunities for all students and have consistently proven particularly successful for a variety of learning styles.

While enrolled at Desiderata, your child receives the personal attention he or she deserves.  A curriculum is designed by Desiderata School staff, in cooperation with the family, because they know their child's needs and goals best.

By utilizing small classrooms and a maximum 8:1 student:teacher ratio, Desiderata retains the ability to adapt programs on-the-fly to best meet the needs of your child.

*Home School Collaboration: Home school students co-enroll to take advantage of the benefits of taking some classes with Desiderata and some classes at home. These students receive support from our staff and school, access to all our field trips and guest speakers, as well as the option to continue participating in enrichment programs such as APEX or LEAP.
