Mission & Philosophy


Colorado Rocky Mountain School cultivates a learning environment in which students discover their potential to excel as individuals, contribute to their communities, and thoughtfully participate in the world we share.


Colorado Rocky Mountain School believes in teenagers - their ideas, their opinions, their sense of adventure, and their potential. When given a connection to the natural environment, meaningful work, and opportunities to create and collaborate, students can truly thrive.

We have created a school community where students feel safe to explore and take risks, empowering them to experience remarkable growth and develop an abundance of self-confidence and compassion.

As a result, students not only take their learning to new heights, but also gain an understanding of the responsibilities they have to themselves, their communities, and the greater world.
