Teller County and Vicinity
Living in Woodland Park – or the surrounding Teller County communities of Divide, Florissant, and Lake George – is the BEST! That’s why I’ve lived here for close to 30 years. If you’ve already visited or live here, you know what I’m talking about: the beauty, the hiking and fishing, the small-town feel, and the list goes on and on! If you’re just now exploring our area, take a look below and then schedule your trip to our piece of Colorado Heaven.
Scenic – Pikes Peak – “America’s Mountain” – is literally right outside your Woodland Park window! Out your other windows you’ll find forest and meadow views as well as views of the Front Range to the north of Woodland Park.
Family-Oriented – Woodland Park is THE place to connect with your family! You have great schools , family events every season, a walkable downtown, unbelievable Parks and Recreation programming for all ages and many interests. Not only will your immediate family enjoy living here, your extended family will be here often – your Woodland Park home may become the reunion gathering spot!
Rustic – Walk out your back door or drive only 5 minutes and you are surrounded by nothing but nature in its purest form! Hike on well laid out trails or forge into the wilderness of Pike National forest to camp, backpack, fish, and photograph for an afternoon or a month! Not so rustic? Take the trail bikes out for a spin or the dirt bikes and ATVs for an exhilarating experience.
Refined – Woodland Park is NOT city living, but cultural amenities are readily available: monthly “Art Walk” events through galleries in Woodland Park sponsored by the Arts Alliance ; regular performances at the Ute Pass Cultural Center by artists of every genre including music – jazz, rock, bluegrass, Celtic, and dance – jazz, ballet, folk, and theater including musicals, as well as art shows of local and regional artists. Need more? Colorado Springs and Denver are short drives away!
Healthy Lifestyle – Enjoy all a community has to offer for a healthy lifestyle: a thriving small town , abundant opportunities to enjoy the outdoors, community events of all kinds, forward-thinking school system, regular health fairs, volunteer options in many areas, public transportation, cultural events, and more!
In 1966, five men recognized the need for Christian education in Colorado Springs and began meeting weekly for prayer concerning their vision for a Christ-centered school. After five years of diligent prayer, in 1971, God opened the necessary doors for CSCS to be established. This firm dedication to a biblically focused education program grounded in prayer continues today.
Celebrating our 40th year, CSCS offers students a well-rounded education – from a comprehensive academic program to a full complement of co-curricular opportunities. All courses are taught from a Christ-centered, biblical perspective by a committed and caring faculty. As an independent, non-denominational school, CSCS is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI).
Education is the foundation for a vital community. Woodland Park School District Re-2 invites all area citizens to become partners with the District’s education staff, for we believe a PERSONAL INVESTMENT IN EDUCATION is an investment in the future of Teller County.
The Woodland Park School District is fully accredited by the Colorado Department of Education. Accreditation is certification by the State Board of Education that public schools and school districts establish standards and goals to be met according to the accreditation indicators and State Board rules and regulations.
