Christian Education for Life

We help students navigate the rocky high school years.  

Our teachers don't just teach, they invest in the lives of their students.  We prepare students for college and whatever journey God has planned for their lives.   

Christian Education for Life

We educate students not just for college acceptances, but for a meaningful life of learning and serving their Savior in whatever journey God has planned for them.  From personal growth in faith huddles to the academic rigor of science courses, from developing skills in athletics to learning to serve each other despite our differences; we understand the challenges high school students face, and we value mentoring students throughout these sometimes rocky years.

Rocky Mountain Lutheran is an accredited, Christian high school located in the Denver metro area. We provide a college prep curriculum, a five days per week schedule, higher than average college entrance scores, and teachers who value mentoring high school students. 

Our mission is to use the Word of God to prepare students as disciples of Christ by nurturing their spiritual life and developing their intellectual, physical, and social skills for dedicated service to their Savior.
