About Colorado Rocky Mountain School

Colorado Rocky Mountain School was founded by John and Anne Holden, with a significant emphasis on the value of learning by doing. For more than 55 years, hands-on experience continues to be used in an authentic manner at the school, so that exposure to ideas, people, places, challenges-in essence, the world-serves as a catalyst and a springboard to new learning. The CRMS "active curriculum" is rooted in a philosophy of experiential education, and while serving as a foundation for the rich history of outdoor trips, sports, and work experiences, these roots also serve in a vital way to nourish the school's academic curriculum. This philosophy of experiential education has proven to be an excellent framework from which to continue to operate one of the country's most unique school models, where a broad-based adventure education, a dynamic selection of academic coursework, and an intimate residential education are all delivered by the same community of faculty. CRMS has found success in a definition of experiential education which promotes a mutual and holistic discovery of knowledge that is shared between teacher and student. One of the defining characteristics of this brand of education is the appropriate balance that educators and administrators at the school strive for between scholarly goals and building moral character. Together, these dual aims help structure what it means to learn at CRMS. Experiential learning at Colorado Rocky Mountain School can be directed toward learning academic content, acquiring a new skill, developing attitudes and dispositions, or enriching perspectives. These outcomes are those we associate with preparing for college. In many cases, lessons learned in our afternoon sports programs, for example, relate directly back to and affect dorm life or events in the classroom. Students at CRMS transition seamlessly from one learning context to another, which strengthens the chances that the lessons learned will persist with our students. CRMS student success is also a result of the degree of ownership and relevance of the learning that occurs on an outdoor trip, during work crew, or even in the afternoon scouting a rapid in order to paddle through it. At CRMS there is a unique opportunity for students to take risks when they take part in the active curriculum. When the fate of an encounter or question is uncertain, we are drawn forward as learners in a powerful way, and suddenly, for many students, the adventure and the personal journey begin. Risks-physical, social, emotional, and spiritual-play a critical role in helping to set the stage for memorable lessons. Risk is present in our academic program, such as when a student risks his or her pride during a competition held in a physics lab. Risk is present in the active curriculum; important life lessons, ones not as available in a more traditional school environment, are learned when students are asked to give of themselves and become part of a group. Preparation for college occurs at CRMS when students confront their essential strengths and their limitations. Much time has passed since the foundations were laid for this dynamic approach to learning at CRMS, and while many things have changed, most of the core ingredients for memorable learning opportunities remain the same.
