    History

    In 1953, John and Anne Holden, teachers at the Putney School in Vermont, bought a green International Harvester truck. They searched the American West in that truck for an ideal place to start an independent, coed boarding school, in the model of Putney, "for college-bound boys and girls who are sound of body and mind, and full of a spirit of adventure." After surveying numerous locales, the Holdens came upon the Western Colorado town of Carbondale, a rugged ranching town in the shadow of 13,000-foot Mt. Sopris. In Carbondale, they knew they had found the place for Colorado Rocky Mountain School, a new school that would be “an antidote to modern, easy living.”

    Now in its 56th year, CRMS boasts a student body of 150, with an energy-efficient $3.2 million classroom building, a half-acre solar array, and programs in state-of-the-art disciplines such as sustainability and environmental stewardship. The Roaring Fork Valley, in which it sits (just 30 miles from Aspen), has evolved as well from a predominantly ranching community into a sophisticated, rapidly growing locale with upscale amenities; CRMS has gone from being a boarding-only school to offering a premier, competitive day-student option. But amid change within and beyond the Roaring Fork Valley, CRMS holds firm to the educational values of the Holdens. We still have the green truck.
