Welcome to Thomas MacLaren School

Thomas MacLaren School, a 6th-12th grade charter public school, is excited to announce that it will be expanding into the elementary grades for the 2018-19 school year. With our new permanent campus at 1702 North Murray Boulevard, we now have the room to become a K-12 school.

Thomas MacLaren School opened its doors in the fall of 2009. From our humble beginnings renting space in a local church for 77 6th-9th grade students, we have now moved into our own campus which will easily accommodate our growing student body of close to 500 students this year. Over the past eight years, MacLaren has racked up impressive awards (School of Distinction, John Irwin Award of Excellence, High School Growth Award) and test scores (Class of 2017 state record-breaking ACT composite average of 29.8) while daily undertaking the task of developing young men and women who are fully human and fully awake to the world. We expect each student to master history, mathematics, science, literature, Latin and English, as well as to gain familiarity with at least one other language and fine arts. As we add an elementary school for the 2018-19 school year, our Lower School (K-5) curriculum, full of rigor and wonder, will prepare these younger students to be able to plumb the depths of the Upper School (6-12) curriculum eagerly and confidently.


We are proud of the fact that the Class of 2017 posted a Colorado state record-breaking average composite score on the ACT of 29.8! The MacLaren community of learners, anchored by our accomplished faculty, creates an environment that encourages each student to become the agent of his or her education.
