Mission Statement

Our mission at the Colorado School of Trades is to educate students to achieve their personal and career success by providing a high quality, accessible education; delivered with respect, individual pride, and a company spirit of teaching and learning with passion and purpose. Over the past seven decades, the Colorado School of Trades has developed a system, based upon hands-on project oriented training, geared to train individuals who wish to become artisan craftsmen. The school prides itself on a personal approach that allows the reasonably diligent student to acquire job skills that will allow him or her to enter the work force and begin a lifelong career in their chosen field. CST has structured the curriculum in such a manner to teach the average student the basics, while also allowing the exceptional student to challenge himself or herself and progress further and learn more complex skills than does the average student. Project based education allows for a student to progress faster than the average student should their talents, work ethic and drive allow them to do so. Entry by the student into their chosen field is the ultimate goal.
