Rocky Mountain College (RMC) is founded on the unique practice of joining the liberal arts tradition along with practical training for professional development. From its inception, RMC functions on a mission of educating students through liberal arts and professional programs that cultivate critical thinking, creative expression, ethical decision-making, informed citizenship, and professional excellence. The College supports its mission through core themes of academic excellence, transformational learning, and shared responsibility and stewardship.
Students are taught across different disciplines, allowing them to speak, write, listen, communicate, take responsibility, solve, and lead. Our College is as much about character formation as it is about intellectual formation. Students will grow in wisdom, maturity, and character. Students will look back on this education and remember it as an invaluable investment.
