Rocky Mountain Prep is an innovative, public charter school network. We educate students in prekindergarten through fifth grade with the rigorous academic preparation, character development, and individualized support necessary to succeed in a four-year college and life. Our values-driven culture combined with a college-prep curriculum drives our scholars to success. RMP scholars and staff work hard to uphold our core PEAK values – Perseverance, Excellence, Adventure, and Kindness – on a daily basis.
Rocky Mountain Prep Southwest enrolls prekindergarten (full-day), kindergarten (free full-day), and first through fourth grades in the 2018-19 school year.

Our extended school year starts the second week of August and ends in late June to help prevent summer learning loss.

Pre-K scholars also receive nightly homework.
