Rocky Mountain Lutheran High School

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 High School (RMLHS) 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 RMLHS, 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 RMLHS 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.

Prospective freshmen must have satisfactorily completed the eighth grade. An official transcript of the student's academic elementary record is necessary for enrollment. Transfer students also need a current transcript.

Non-Discrimination Policy

While Rocky Mountain Lutheran High School is maintained primarily for students who belong to the RMLHS Federation of congregations, we also recognize the fact that "...God does not show favoritism, but accepts men from every nation who fear Him..." (Acts 10:34-35). Therefore, Rocky Mountain Lutheran High School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, scholarships and loan programs, and athletic and other school administered programs.

The remainder of the tuition cost is subsidized by RMLHS Federation congregations and private individuals. Tuition payments can be made annually, semi-annually, or monthly through our tuition management company.
