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

Desiderata School’s mission is to support and foster young minds using a variety of techniques, resources, and teaching styles.

We believe that educational success is the shared responsibility of the student, home, school, teachers, and community. We believe that an effective education must support the whole child. In using customized courses tailored to each student, along with personalized learning schedules, and our belief that any place in which learning takes place is a classroom, Desiderata School strives to demonstrate a more effective approach to learning. By placing the emphasis of our programs on developing critical thinkers capable of not only learning, but also able to; identify information needed, locate viable resources, and apply information gathered to problem solving, we give our students ownership of their education.
