International Students

CRMS is proud of its international student diversity and welcomes all international students to apply for admission. With approximately 15% of the student body each year coming from around the world, CRMS embraces a global community. Learn more about the application process for international students below.

The International Student Program is designed to support international students as they transition to school and life in the US.

All new international students begin the school year with an orientation program before the new student Wilderness Orientation backpacking trip. During the new international student orientation, students and parents are provided an opportunity to acclimatize both to CRMS’s altitude and to the school’s culture. During orientation students will meet their advisors, get a taste of the CRMS active program and work crews, tour campus, take placement assessments, shop for dormitory supplies, socialize with their peers, and get to know the greater Roaring Fork Valley.

Once the students settle into their daily life at school and begin their coursework, they continue to find support from the International Student Program. The program offers intermediate and advanced/integrated ESOL courses, TOEFL test preparation, transportation to test locations, special international student outings and weekend programming, assistance with travel plans, and on-campus cultural events. The director of the International Student Program is available to support and celebrate international students at CRMS.
