Our program accomplishes this by creating a supportive and challenging environment that pushes students out of their comfort zones, and encourages them to try new experiences. We then ask the students to reflect on their experiences at the ranch, and we work to instill tools and values that help them carry the lessons learned here back home with them.
Our Rocky Mountain Pathways Ranch located on 56 acres bordering the Roosevelt National Forest in Colorado was purchased.
RMPR started our first ever program with our partner school Opportunities for Learning and developed a full curriculum.
RMPR launched our first ever Winter Adventure Camp with outdoor snow sports such as snowboarding, skiing, snowshoeing, and more!
Our ranch continues to produce exemplary experiential learning programs for 1,000+ students every year.
At Rocky Mountain Pathways Ranch, our philosophy encompasses our core values of mutual respect, mutual trust, compassion, resilience, and integrity.
We work to provide the best open learning experience for students. Our organization fosters on a culture of teamwork and flexibility, but with a major element of heart.
At RMPR, we don’t just offer a rigorous academic program. We also provide a life-changing experience that encourages students to dare greatly and follow their dreams.
I will explore my past to put me on a path of self discovery to understand who I am and how to become the person I want to be.
I will be vulnerable in order to step outside of my comfort zone to improve my ability to manage and cope with all of my emotions.
I will make a personal contract to remind me of my self worth and commitment to my future.
“Social-emotional learning (SEL) is the process of developing the self-awareness, self-control, and interpersonal skills that are vital for school, work, and life.”
At RMPR, we promote student success based on the whole person. Our programs are based on these theories and strategies to help students be successful at school, at home, and beyond.
