The list of newly-approved charter schools is ever-changing, but according to my records, here are the schools that will open this fall:
1. Animas High School in Durango (CSI): approved last year, but delayed opening
2. KIPP High School-Denver (DPS): an extension for the successful KIPP Sunshine Peak Academy, a 5-8 charter school
3. Envision (DPS): one of the Get Smart schools project

5. Edison (DPS): operated by the Edison Learning company
6. Thomas MacLaren (CSI): a classical education high school replicating the Trinity School
7. Justice High School-Denver (DPS): a replication of the successfu Justice HS in Boulder
8. Cesar Chavez Academy-Denver (DPS): another replication of the successful Cesar Chavez Academy in Pueblo; K-8
9. St. Vrain Montessori (SVVSD): a Montessori school beginning with the primary grades and growing through middle school
10. Westgate (Adams 12): a K-8 school for gifted and talented students, including those with special needs

Imagine at Fountain Meadows (Falcon) was approved, but now will delay opening a year due to slowed growth in the new subdivision where it is planned to open.
Foundations Academy (Brighton) was approved, but looks like it'll delay a year.
Provost Academy was just approved by CSI, but its opening year is not finally determined yet.
