Cynthia Cox   

Our Executive Director

Cynthia is passionate about working with students and families, and is thrilled to serve as the Executive Director of Leadership Academy of Colorado!

With nearly 20 years of experience in teaching and school administration in both the private and public school sectors, education has been a large part of Cynthia’s life mission. She loves seeing the delight in students’ eyes when they learn a new skill or idea. She can’t wait to help your student have a top-notch online learning experience at LACO.

Cynthia holds a Master of Arts in Education from George Mason University and a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education from Weber State University. She enjoys spending time with family, and her grandchildren bring her joy! Besides education, Cynthia loves boating, skiing, home decorating, throwing parties, and anything that involves sunshine, family, and friends.

We Hire Mentors 

At LACO, we call our teachers “mentors.” We use the term “mentor” to remind everyone that education is about unleashing the potential of every student, not test scores and bureaucracy. Because we are online, we’re not limited by geography to find the best mentors in the world. This allows us to find people who have a greater range of life experience, perspectives, and talents to help them connect with your student. Our mentors get to know your child through live classes, office hours, and assignments with personalized feedback, creating a more meaningful connection.
