Established in 2007, the High School High Scholar [HS]2 program at Colorado Rocky Mountain School (CRMS) is a three-summer scholarship program with an emphasis on courses in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM), and college counseling. [HS]2 supports first-generation and/or low-income minority students and prepares them to succeed in college by empowering them with STEM-based skills, a family of driven peers, and a space to see the light and power in their own voices.
During five weeks each summer, [HS]2 scholars live and learn on the CRMS campus in Carbondale, Colorado. On weekdays, students attend six hours of academic classes. In the afternoons, they participate in the Active Program, which includes rock climbing, kayaking, and team sports, as well as art classes such as silversmithing, ceramics, and music. On weekends, the natural environment surrounding campus inspires exploration. This unique combination of challenging academics and outdoor activities contributes to the intellectual, social, and emotional growth of each [HS]2 scholar, while the boarding experience fosters independence and responsibility.
This is an intense and rewarding opportunity to teach highly motivated students and to spend five weeks working and playing in the mountains, rivers, and trails surrounding Carbondale, Colorado. Housing (if needed) includes a room in a faculty dormitory with a shared bathroom. Meals are thoughtfully planned and prepared by the CRMS kitchen. Welcoming, supportive and inclusive community. Colorado Rocky Mountain School is an equal opportunity employer.
The 2022 [HS]2 program runs June 20 to July 23, with faculty and RA/TAs arriving on campus Thursday, June 16, and departing between July 23-25.
