Milestone Academy is scheduled to launch August of 2018.
The current plan is to open with grades K-10 and possibly 11th, depending on interest.
Milestone Academy will be located on a 30+ acre site on the Northwest corner of Plum Creek Parkway and Ridge Road. This fantastic site will allow for the full build out of our wonderful K-12 campus, with plenty of space for buildings, parking, sports fields, and other amenities.
With the success of existing charter schools, many parents in Castle Rock desire another charter school, especially one with a high school option. Merlin Holmes, the founder and CEO of Capstone, has helped open two charters in Douglas County with academic, cultural, and operational success.

Why another charter school?
Current K-8 charter schools in Castle Rock have over 800 students on their waitlists, so it is very difficult to get a spot in these schools. Once students complete 8th grade, they currently have no charter high school option in Castle Rock.
In the last bond issue, DCSD asked for funds to complete an expansion of Castle View High School. That bond issue failed to pass, so there is need for high school space in Castle Rock.
DCSD student enrollment has grown by an average of over 1500 students per year over the past 5 years! With many new homes under construction in Castle Rock, the added space of Milestone Academy will be a great benefit to Castle Rock families.
