Enrollment at the Crest Academy

Thank you for your interest in The Crest Academy!

Enrollment for Crest for the '22-'23 school year is closed, and the waitlist is capped. 


Hello Parents/Guardians of 4th Graders!

My name is Kristie Servis and I'm the Principal of The Crest Academy here in Salida, Colorado.  We are reaching out to share with you pertinent information you need if you are interested in your student attending The Crest Academy for the 2023-2024 school year.  If you don't know much about the Crest Academy, HERE is information about our program.  Below are important dates you should mark on your calendar.

On Wednesday, February 8, 2023 at 5:15 p.m. we will be having a Parent Information session held at our building (627 Oak Street).  During that time we will give an overview of our school/program, we will give you information about upcoming Shadow Days and we will explain the Enrollment process.  This session is not mandatory, but is highly recommended so you can come meet our staff, see our facility, and learn more about us.

On February 21 (Longfellow) & February 23 (Montessori, SMS, out-of-district) we will be hosting a Shadow Day with any students who are interested in coming to our school.  This is optional, but it's a wonderful chance for students to experience what it's like to be a Crest llama for the day!  The Crest Academy will coordinate the logistics with your student’s 4th grade teacher if your student attends LES.  Anyone from SMS, Montessori, or out-of-district, please reach out to our School Counselor, Diana Mastascusa at [email protected] to coordinate your visit.  

On February 27, 2023 our enrollment form (demographics) & the student & parent interest surveys will be opened.  Completing those 3 items is all you'll need to do to get placed into the lottery.  Those 3 forms must be completed by March 2, 2023.  There are no extensions to this deadline.

If you have any questions or concerns, please call the front office at 719.530.5390 or email us:
