At High Point Academy, we work in partnership with diverse families and the community to engage scholars in holistic, equitable, interdisciplinary and dynamic learning providing an environment where scholars are able to achieve more than they thought possible for themselves. We foster a culture of respect, collaboration, community, and curiosity to prepare our scholars to be life-long learners and responsible humans.

Mental health challenges in children and adolescents across Colorado are real and widespread. Even before the pandemic, an unacceptable number of young people were having a hard time recovering from current or past trauma and coping with feelings such as sadness and hopelessness that can be difficult to talk about out loud.We are all navigating through unprecedented changes since the COVID-19 pandemic began. These changes have impacted youth in multiple ways, including living with heightened stress and anxiety and fear, transitions to and from online classes, school closings, and changes in how we all interact and connect with others.To address this mental health crisis, the State of Colorado has launched the I Matter program to provide access to free therapy sessions for youth in Colorado.

  • The program is open to youth 18 years of age or younger or 21 years of age or younger if receiving special education services.
  • Youth and their parents can visit the platform to take a confidential online survey about their mental health and schedule sessions with a licensed therapist, primarily via telehealth.
  • A Spanish language version of the program can be found at, and the program has licensed therapists who can provide sessions in Spanish.

Common Sense Media

Noknok.  Who’s there?  Whisper a Secret on Line, Space Tag a Kik, Wechat your YikYak through Snapchat, and Poof, it’s gone!  Or is it?  Do you have any idea what any of this means?  While the last sentences probably don’t make much sense (to adults or kids alike), they contain the names of several new and old smartphone apps that can be used for chatting, instant messaging, or social networking.  Some have location services.  These may be helpful to parents arranging a play date, but frightening when your son or daughter just arranged to meet a stranger outside McDonald’s.
