The Vanguard School is a public charter K-12 school in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Established in 1995, The Vanguard School has two campuses — one for grades K-3 and the other for grades 4-12. The school added a Monolithic Dome to their 4-12 campus to serve up to 300 junior high school students.

The 20,000 square foot (1,858 m²) dome houses twelve classrooms, two science laboratories, and administration offices. The Monolithic Dome is 162.5-feet (49.5 m) diameter by 31.5-feet (9.6 m) tall on a 12-foot (3.66 m) concrete masonry wall with an overall height of 43.5-feet (13.26 m).
