WELCOME TO ANIMAS HIGH SCHOOL

Animas High School prepares all students for college and postsecondary success by creating critical thinkers and engaged citizens through an innovative, student-centered, project-based curriculum.

AHS was founded in 2009 by community members who saw a need for a distinctive school of choice in the Four Corners region. An award-winning, free, public school chartered through the Colorado Charter School Institute,  AHS serves approximately 200 students in grades 9-12 in Durango, Colorado.

BUILDING A NEW NEST

Animas High School is building a new facility on the Fort Lewis College campus with plans to move in Fall 2022! Help us to move into our permanent home by donating to our Elevating Animas Campaign.

This is a great opportunity to leave a legacy with your name or your student’s name by making a donation and having it recognized as you walk into the building. There will be a 7 foot long horizontal donor recognition wall with 5 levels of giving:

After making a donation you will receive a tax receipt with an email confirming what you would like to be printed on the donor wall in recognition of your donation.

Want to make a monthly donation or multi-year pledge? Check out our Elevating Animas FAQ. If you have questions, please reach out to libby.cowles@animashighschool.com.
