A Place to Belong

Community has been a core value of Colorado Rocky Mountain School since founders John and Anne Holden set out to build a school where students and adults would learn, live, and work together. As Head of School Jeff Leahy says, “We emphasize tight-knit relationships among faculty, staff, and students and compel our young adults to go beyond mere academic achievement to become productive, engaged members of society."

These attributes can be found throughout the CRMS experience from the advisor program, citizenship and leadership opportunities, and commitment to diversity to the wealth of options to pursue activities outside of the classroom during the week and on weekends. The Colorado Rocky Mountain School program provides a robust and unique experience that most students carry with them for the rest of their lives.

The culture at Colorado Rocky Mountain School is described as friendly, adventurous, creative, open-minded, and kind. This is a place where students feel accepted, challenged, and engaged and are given the opportunity to lead extraordinary lives.
