Welcome to Morgridge Academy. We are glad you are here.
In May 2013, our school was renamed the Morgridge Academy to recognize the long-time support and commitment of John and Carrie Morgridge and the Morgridge Family Foundation. “Our gifts combine two causes we feel passionate about – education and National Jewish Health,” said Carrie Morgridge, Vice President of the Foundation.

Morgridge Academy is a free, Colorado Department of Education approved facility school which serves children in kindergarten through eighth grade who have been diagnosed with a chronic illness. Morgridge Academy is the only school of its kind on a medical campus in the country, and its mission is to provide a safe, friendly, and healthy school environment committed to whole-child development. The students who attend Morgridge Academy have diagnoses that include severe asthma and allergies, diabetes, sickle cell anemia, HIV/AIDS, atopic dermatitis (eczema), juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, interstitial lung disease, cystic fibrosis, and muscular disorders. With a dedicated team of teachers, nurses, a child advocate, school counselor, P.E. teacher, and Fine Arts teacher, the students receive a quality education all while learning to manage their illness.
We are committed to building a community that offers the highest level of care and individual instruction for students.

It is with heavy, but grateful hearts that we bid goodbye to Mr. Reid as he retires. Morgridge Academy, previously Kunsberg School, was privileged and honored to have him as principal for nine years. His calm hand of leadership and guidance will be missed by staff and students alike, but that warm Southern drawl will be greatly appreciated by his family at home in Arkansas…especially his grandchildren. We wish him good health and the best of everything as he steps into retirement! Come visit, Mr. Reid…but fly and save your energy!
