RMCAD grants Jefferson County high school graduates a full year of tuition

In an effort to further drive creative careers while inspiring the next generation of young artists, the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design (RMCAD) is offering a scholarship tuition grant for Jefferson County high school graduates and teachers as part of our community partnership.

Jefferson County high school graduates can expect to have 30 credits (totaling to one year of college) by the time they graduate RMCAD at no cost: three credits granted for freshman, six granted for sophomores, nine granted for juniors and 12 granted for seniors. Jefferson County teachers who want to further their education get a 50 percent tuition break.

Chris Spohn, President of RMCAD, says this partnership is happening at the right time. “Jefferson County Public Schools has always provided a quality education that prepares all children for a successful future — that is why RMCAD is excited to expand our partnership. In the past few years, RMCAD has seen their total student enrollment grow by over 25 percent; experiencing its largest student population in over 57 years since the institution was founded. This partnership will benefit both Jefferson County students and teachers for many years to come,” Spohn said.

The reduced tuition grant goes into effect starting the 2020/2021 academic school year. Current students who went to a Jefferson County high school will be grandfathered in based on their current grade level. This applies to all Jefferson County School District graduates.
