Liberty Common School is a tuition-free, charter-public school in the Poudre School District. We are dedicated to the Core Knowledge curriculum, and college-preparatory instruction.

Liberty Common School is a k-12 school spanning three campuses. Our two Elementary School campuses (Plato and Aristotle) house our kindergarten through sixth-grade students, and Liberty Common High School (LCHS) is home to our seventh through twelfth grades.

Students at Liberty Common School are exposed to classically-oriented education, focusing on literacy and Great Books. They are also taught foundation stones of character education in the elementary, which scale up to “capstone virtues” of our junior-high and high-school.


The mission of Liberty is to provide excellence and fairness in education for school children through a common foundation by successfully teaching a contextual body of organized knowledge, the skills of learning including higher order thinking, and the values of a democratic society. Liberty recognizes the value of inclusiveness, or providing access to a broad cross-section of the community, so that students from all backgrounds can benefit from Liberty’s educational offering. Liberty acknowledges the leadership of teachers in the classroom, and recognizes the responsibility of each student for his/her academic effort.


Liberty Common School follows the Core Knowledge Curriculum in grades k–8. Liberty’s curriculum, the Core Knowledge Sequence, encompasses language arts, mathematics, science, history, geography, fine arts, and physical education. The curriculum is characterized by knowledge that is content-rich, cumulative, content-specific, and coherent.

Liberty Common High School is a classically-oriented, liberal-arts, college-preparatory institution accentuating math, science and engineering. We believe a high-quality, rigorous education is the “great equalizer” among individuals, allowing all students to achieve mature literacy and obtain the ability to thrive in college. Liberty Common School prides itself on maintaining a faculty of experts in their fields.

Liberty Common acknowledges the leadership of professional classroom instructors, and recognizes the responsibility of each student for his/her academic effort.

Liberty Common firmly believes that it is the right and responsibility of parents to direct the education and upbringing of their children.
