Mrs. Jennifer Hollis is our Head of School and our Lead Teacher. Her background is in Primary Education, with a Masters in Literacy. She founded Harmony Hills Academy in 2013, which expanded on her 14 years of experience in Elementary Schools in Evergreen, Conifer, and Bailey. For 2014 to 2017, she has taught Junior K through 8th Grades at the Academy.
For the 2016/2017 School Year, we are adopting a 4-day school week with Friday’s attendance being optional. This new schedule will allow our students to meet the Colorado Standards for School Attendance, while only attending Monday through Thursday each school week. For those who desire that fifth day on Friday’s, we will have specialized instruction, one-on-one support, and fun academic projects. We are currently enrolling for the 2017/2018 school year and have openings in all grades Kindergarten through 8th.
We are having our next Open House and Registration event on Wednesday, March 1, 2017. Please join us at the Clifton House (12414 US Hwy 285, Conifer, CO) anytime between 5:30pm and 7:00pm. Meet Mrs. Hollis and the Harmony Hills staff, plus see our unique setting. Children are welcome.

It happens in classrooms and schools, and the people who do it are the teachers and the students. And if you remove their discretion, it stops working.–Ken Robinson, Best-Selling Author
