We Believe In
Who We Are
We are truly blessed to have so many quality teachers that share the vision of Credo through their love of learning, their love for the students, and love for the Lord.
Classes are held Thursdays 8:30 AM - 5 PM. We have been at Cornerstone Church in Lone Tree for 15 years, but are now looking for a new home. We hope to stay on the south side of the Denver area.
Credo Academy offers classes when God provides teachers who have expertise in a subject, are passionate about teaching it to others, and desire to teach in a Christian environment. Could this be you? To learn more, please click on the link below.

Important Things to Know About Credo Academy:
1. We exist to supplement your homeschooling, not replace it. Credo teachers provide an academic context for selected classes and offer assistance in a group setting. Parents direct the course of study and oversee the student’s academic progress. Parent involvement covers much more than making sure homework gets done. Parents homeschool, produce transcripts and make sure all educational requirements for graduation are met.
2. We accept well behaved, respectful, self-controlled students. Credo operates with minimal supervision. Teachers instruct students in the classrooms and volunteer parents monitor other Credo areas. If a student becomes a discipline problem, the parents are immediately notified and the student is asked to leave. Students are corrected for mild infractions, but unruly students and those who cause ongoing unrest will lose the privilege of taking classes at Credo.
3. Christianity is included in your student’s studies. Credo is led by Christians who strive to live Christ-centered lives. Classes are taught by teachers whose faith intentionally influences their teaching. Classes are taught from a predominately Protestant worldview.
4. Credo classes come with a monetary cost. Each Credo family pays the instructor(s) for the class(es) selected for their student(s). Each family buys their own textbooks and supplies. Credo’s registration fee covers facility usage, insurance, etc.
5. Planning the new school year takes some flexibility. Credo offers classes when God provides teachers who have expertise in a subject and there are an adequate number of students for the class. It is possible that a proposed class may be cancelled if the minimum numbers of students are not enrolled.
6. We communicate primarily electronically (email, internet). Parents will need to check email and the website regularly. We try to keep our parent communications limited to a weekly memo. Teachers also may use email communication with students. Credo is administered by busy homeschool families. If you have questions for Credo leaders or teachers, we encourage you to communicate with them via email.
7. Every family volunteers at Credo. Credo operates through the combined efforts of everyone. Each family attending Credo is required to volunteer between 15-20 hours per semester. The volunteering lightens the workload for all, allows parents a better understanding of Credo, and assists instructors, parents, and students as we come together in the process of education. Please see the Volunteer Job Descriptions on the website for a list of typical volunteer needs.
8. We are an academic center first and foremost. The purpose of Credo is focused on the academic needs of our families. Students are on site for the purpose of taking classes. Friendships will be made and meaningful fellowship is encouraged; however, we are not equipped for students to “hang out” during the day when they are not in class.
9. We exist for families who have chosen to not participate in a K-12 public school/homeschool hybrid. We make no judgment on any family who chooses a public-school affiliated option (e.g., publically funded online school, dual enrollment, enrichment program, Early Colleges High School, etc.) to assist them with educating their children, but we are for families who homeschool middle- and high-school independently from the public schools. Credo students are allowed to be involved in concurrent enrollment in college classes.
