Our Program

Our Program - The Block Plan

Colorado College’s innovative approach to the liberal arts is the Block Plan, our uniquely intensive academic schedule that allows students to dive into a different subject every three-and-a-half weeks. Students take one class at a time for three-and-a-half weeks, totaling four classes per semester and eight classes per year. Students take, and professors teach, one class at a time for approximately three hours per day, from 9 a.m. to noon, Monday through Friday. The flexibility of the Block Plan allows for field study and study abroad, including day-long, week-long, and block-long trips domestically and internationally. At the end of each block, students take four-and-a-half days to relax, refresh, and explore during block breaks.

Our Place

Our Place - Colorado Springs

Nestled in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado Springs is the second-largest city in Colorado. Boasting at least 300 days of sunshine per year, Colorado Springs sits at 6,035 feet in altitude with Pikes Peak as a backdrop. Because the Block Plan encourages interaction between you and your surroundings, Colorado College offers two satellite campuses in the Rocky Mountain region — the Baca campus in Crestone, Colorado, and the CC cabin in Divide, Colorado. Ranked the number one best town by Outside magazine and the number one big city to live in by Money magazine, Colorado Springs offers a perfect blend of indoor and outdoor activities.

Our People

Our People - A Vibrant, Caring Community

Life at CC has a distinct rhythm with students, faculty, and staff all working on the Block Plan. Students engage with each other and their passions both inside and outside the classroom. Our residential campus requires students to live on campus for three years in traditional residence halls, small houses, themed houses, and apartments. Our food community sees students connecting over meals, coffee, farming, and cooking.
