The Morgridge Academy
The Morgridge Academy at National Jewish Health is a free day school for 90 chronically ill students in kindergarten through eighth grades. Its mission is to provide a safe, friendly and healthy school environment where students succeed academically, medically and socially. Many students are minorities, and most families are at or below poverty level. Typically, these students have fallen behind their peers in school because of illnesses, including severe asthma and/or allergies, sickle cell anemia, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and other respiratory and related disorders. The Morgridge Academy students receive care and learn to manage their illnesses from three nurses and National Jewish Health pediatricians. They eat nutritious meals, exercise daily, and practice positive social interaction. The students learn in small classes from teachers with advanced degrees using the latest educational technology tools; they demonstrate their knowledge by showing steady improvement on the CSAP test and outpacing their peers in similar schools. Upon graduation, The Morgridge Academy students have the skills to lead healthy, productive, meaningful and active lives.
