Compass Stories

Youth are the Change

Students from the Leadership and Photography seminar, Being the Change Through the Lens, hosted a Youth Art Exhibition at the Colorado Feed and Grain Public Market and Coffeehouse in Timnath October 24-November 2. During the month of October, several Compass students completed the Intercultural Community Builder’s (ICB) Teen Intercultural Leadership training and workshop.

A Visit with Our Attorney General

Bonnie, Shamayim, and Jason took nearly 40 students to CSU to hear speaker Attorney General Weiser on election day. He spoke about the importance of staying positive and involved in government policy, even when politics are frustrating and divisive. It was really inspirational!

Venture Profile: Virtual Reality, Real Feelings

Hello! This is Dawn DuPriest and this quarter, I’m facilitating a venture project class called “Virtual Reality, Real Feelings” — about the crossroads of VR and empathy. The purpose of this venture is to explore how VR technology can immerse someone in a world so much that it changes their perception of the world.

Second Quarter Venture Projects at Compass

At Compass Community Collaborative School, students immerse in quarter-long interdisciplinary Venture Projects. Students and staff utilize a human-centered design approach —a process that offers our students a chance to deeply understand the communities we wish to serve, to truly understand what is at the heart of a given problem, to design with those who may face the challenges we attempt to solve, to dream up scores of ideas, and to create innovative, thoughtful solutions that are grounded in our community’s needs.

What is a Compass Seminar

Seminars allow Compass students to explore MANY different interests! Students enjoy two seminars a week. We are so grateful for our Compass staff and community partners that make these unique learning experiences possible.
