For over 40 years, Telluride Academy has been rooted in the belief that kids grow better outside and that the "outside" is for everyone! From our inception we have worked to create a community that is inclusive, emphatic, understanding and welcoming to all. We are guided by a belief that diversity is a fundamental element that enhances every facet of our program and provides both students and staff with the essential perspectives they need to thrive in an increasingly complex, multicultural and connected society. We have a lot to learn and a long ways to travel, but as with any adventure worth pursuing, we are committed to the journey and the the lessons that will be learned along the way. Through listening, honesty and productive conversations, we hope to perpetuate a culture of inclusion within the outdoor community and foster future ambassadors for a more just, equitable and diverse society.

Telluride Academy Seeks Regional Land Access Partners
As the popularity of the southwest increases, we are experiencing a major uptick in users to our usually quiet public lands. Our permitted overnight locations are becoming more crowded and harder to access. Factor in the challenges of limited transportation due to the pandemic and it quickly becomes apparent how important our land partnerships are! If you would consider granting Academy students access to your property in the summer months, we'd LOVE to hear from you! We don't need much...just some open space for tents and room to roam and explore!
