Rocky Mountain Lutheran

Just like individuals, each high school can claim to be different. From location to buildings each school can claim an element of uniqueness. But look closer. How many are truly different in the areas that are most important to you?

How many can honestly say that their academic focus, their student body, their faculty, and their curriculum are set apart from other high schools? Rocky Mountain Lutheran (RML) can.

Why? Because at the very heart of our Gospel-based curriculum, student-centered institution is our desire for excellence in all we do. At RML, you’ll find that we’re all a family sharing a common goal: the pursuit of knowledge and experience while serving our Savior in an environment that is distinctly Christian. We are all moving in the same direction, and this makes for a campus where you won’t be surprised to receive a friendly smile or greeting every time you encounter another student or faculty member.

You can see the difference at RML in the eyes of a passionate faculty and enthusiastic student body. You can feel it in an atmosphere of encouragement, excellence, and accountability. And you can live it through the caring relationships and service opportunities found at our school.

We love RML. The teachers are awesome and care greatly for the students spiritual and academic needs. My kids get to participate in multiple sports at competitive levels while also growing their love for music and theater. - Current RML Parent

Rocky is not just a high school, it's a home. It's a safe haven where all your child's needs will not go unnoticed. I was fortunate enough to attend when Rocky opened its doors in 2002. It's heartwarming to see how God has blessed the school in its growth- not just with the size of the student population and number of classes offered, but also with the extracurriculars and college prep programs available. I was able to visit Rocky again this past year and immediately saw that one thing hasn't changed. The dedication Rocky's teachers and staff have for their students does not waver. They work countless hours behind the scenes and make sacrifices not because they have to, but because they know how important it is as their mission "to prepare youth as disciples of Christ... for dedicated service to their Savior." Rocky will not disappoint in giving your child a solid education. Your child will be prepared not just for college, but for life. - RML Alumna

Great school! I graduated from this school in 2012 and I loved it. There is a lot of good things I could say about my experience. The best thing about this school is how much the staff actually care and are involved in the students life. - RML Alumnus

RML is truly an amazing school! The faculty and staff welcome students with open arms and treat them with love and respect. The academic and social atmosphere encourages excellence and cooperation while laying a rock-solid biblical foundation. Small school population means small class sizes and opportunities for students to participate in multiple sports and other activities, year-round. We moved from Kansas City to Denver specifically so our kids could attend RML. That was the best decision we have ever made for our kids. The influence the school has had on them is remarkable. We couldn't be happier. Come and tour the school. Send your teens to RML. It will change their lives for the the better! GO EAGLES!!! - Parent of RML Alumni
