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.

Curious what this looks like? Come visit and see for yourself.

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.

IMPORTANT: Juniors and Seniors will be excused from coming to school that day. This would be a great opportunity for junior and senior students to complete a service project for themselves, visit a college or university they have an interest in, or arrange to shadow someone in an occupation in which they have an interest. Junior and senior basketball players and cheerleaders do still need to attend the basketball games that evening.

Tickets for the dance are $2 and can be purchased in the next two weeks from student senate members. Tickets are not available at the door. There will not be basketball practice this evening.

As a private school that desires to keep tuition affordable for families, we are grateful for the support of our nineteen Federation churches along the Rocky Mountains.

WELS has operated schools since the 1850s and is one of the largest private educational systems in the United States, including one seminary, two colleges, two prep schools, twenty-four high schools, over three hundred elementary schools, and over four hundred preschools.
