Students Learn with Confidence
RMCA inspires each student to reach high academic goals. They are supported by caring, capable teachers in a small class environment. Teachers utilize time-tested instructional methods in the classical tradition to equip students with the skills to succeed academically and think critically. The results speak for themselves: our students love to learn, consistently outperform their peers on national standardized tests, and are prepared to walk into any advanced academic program and excel.
Students Grow in Faith
RMCA places Christ at the center of everything we do. Students read the Bible daily. They learn how to understand Scripture and develop their relationship with the Lord. A Christian worldview is integrated into all learning as students develop the ability to apply their faith into every activity, every subject, and every relationship.
Students Thrive in Community
RMCA’s families experience a vibrant, supportive community. Teachers work in harmony with parents to help students grow and flourish. The friendships students and parents form at school carry into their churches, clubs, sports, and other activities. The result is a cohesive Christian community that works together to transform families for a lifetime.
Rocky Mountain Christian Academy began as a dream for classical Christian education in the 1990s. In 1998, the first kindergarten class opened with five students. The next year, in 1999, the school officially opened with 120 students in K-5th grade, in the brand-new, 54,000 square foot education wing at Rocky Mountain Christian Church. The school grew dramatically over the next ten years. 6th grade was added in 2002, and the first 8th graders graduated from RMCA in 2006.
RMCA is a member of Ambleside Schools International (ASI), the Association of Classical and Christian Schools (ACCS) and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). We are an independent, nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, governed by a Board of Directors. We are grateful to Rocky Mountain Christian Church for their support and generosity in starting the school. We share facilities with the church and one member of the Elder Board sits on the RMCA Board.
RMCA students come from a variety of communities within a 20-mile radius: Longmont, Niwot, Lafayette, Erie, Firestone, Frederick, Boulder, Louisville, Broomfield, Berthoud, and more. They also represent over 50 local church communities, from a variety of denominational and doctrinal perspectives within the Christian tradition.
