Founded in 1970, Dawson School is a K-12 college preparatory, private school of 525 students located in Lafayette, Colorado, serving Adams, Boulder, and Weld counties.
Dawson graduates are young men and women who achieve their potential, savor life through developing their passions, and are ready to meet the world's challenges.
We make that vision true for our students daily through challenging academics, robust athletics and arts programs, experiential and outdoor education, and a focus on character education and leadership opportunities.
Dawson has a committed and energetic team of faculty leaders in their fields. Our student: faculty ratio is 7:1 so that you can be assured your child is known and nurtured, and our average class size is 15.
From Lower School features -- such as over 9 hours of Spanish, art, music, technology, library, and PE every week -- through Upper School's 100% college acceptance rate and over $6 million in scholarships offered annually, Dawson's program provides unique opportunities for every student.
