There's a new charter school opening this fall in Colorado Springs called Atlas Prep. Founder, Zach McComsey, is leading the effort. Zach has gone through the Building Excellent Schools program and is partnering with several community organizations, including the El Pomar Foundation, the Walton Family Foundation and the Daniels Fund.
Atlas Prep is targeting middle school students with an intensive college-prep model. The school is hoping to enroll low-income students who may be the first in their family to go to college.
