K-8 Enrichment Academy:

The Enrichment Academy provides an opportunity for children who are currently home-schooled to participate in enrichment activities in a structured school setting.

The Enrichment Academy complements your own home-school curriculum.

Students in Grades K-5 attend Gateway Elementary or Summit Elementary one day per week with a certified teacher. During that time, students participate in physical education, art, music, science hands-on labs (not a complete science curriculum), Spanish/Sign, drama, technology and library/media time. Other options could include literacy assessments, school-wide events, programs, assemblies, intramurals, choir, clubs and class field trips.

When and Where?

Actual schedules depend on students’ grade levels. Contact Gateway or Summit Elementary for specific days and times, as well as class availability.


Our Enrichment Academy is offered at no cost to families enrolled and in attendance by October 1st. Classes will be filled on a first come, first served basis when all district enrollment forms are completed and turned in. Students may enroll throughout the school year if space is available.

What if my child participates in an online program?

Students enrolled in the WPSD Online Program are welcome to attend our Enrichment Academy. For students attending another district’s online program, we must receive written approval from that program to share funding prior to enrollment.

Do you have a Enrichment Academy for Middle School and High School students?

Middle School students are invited to attend the Enrichment Academy at Summit Elementary. Additionally, Middle School and High School students who homeschool or enroll in the WPSD Online Program are encouraged to attend our schools for at least two classes of their choice. Because of the number of campus classes available and to accommodate individual interests, there is no actual Cottage School. Counselors at Woodland Park Middle School and Woodland Park High School work hard to arrange classes to best meet student needs.
