Colorado Rocky Mountain School cultivate a learning enviornment in which students discover their potential to excels as individuals, contribute to their communities, and participate thoughtfully in the world we share. Since CRMS's founding more than fifty years ago, we've believed that a school should enrich and engage the mind, body, and soul of its students.
Their individual potentials become illuminated in a community that truly embraces them and their contributions. Everything that a student does-in the classroom, in the active curriculum, within and beyond the CRMS community-is designed toward the development of a complex, nuanced person, because at CRMS we value each student's individual potentials, and embrace the comtributions they can make to our school.
A CRMS student graduates with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to succeed in college, and to lead a fulfilling life.
CRMS's distillation of academic, active, and community influences is unique among independent boarding schools.
