Delayed Starts & Closures

Aurora Academy Charter School now follows Aurora Public Schools (APS) for BOTH delayed starts AND closures. If APS announces a delayed start, we also will be on a delayed start. If APS announces that schools are closed we will be closed.

Delayed Start means you must be at the school by the time the district announces. If they say, we're on an hour delay, then your child must be here and in his/her classroom by 8:58am.

Watch news channels and check the APS website for delayed start and closure information.

A label in the top left hand corner of the APS website starts whether or not district schools are open, closed, or on a delay.

Welcome to Aurora Academy

Aurora Academy Charter's School mission is to provide a well-rounded, rigorous curriculum with high academic standards for Kindergarten through 8th grade students.

Since the school’s inception, Aurora Academy has proven to be an exemplary place to learn and grow. With a student population near 540 each academic year, 90% of its students stay with the school to complete their elementary and middle school education. Aurora Academy consistently outperforms district and state schools in producing high scores in nationwide assessments. The school has been recognized by the Colorado Department of Education as a School of Distinction. Aurora Academy has also been honored three times with the Governor’s Distinguished Improvement Award, an honor presented for having some of the highest rates of growth on student assessments.

SOARing Students

WOW! Our 5th - 8th grade students wrote letters to the Aurora Police Department as part of their unit on caring and compassion. The letters were sent to recognize officers for doing something for others without expecting anything in return.


APD took the time to made this video for us! 


Thank you Mrs. Vance for such a rewarding experience for our students. 


Here is the video, warning you may need some tissues! 🥰
