Classes begin the first week of April and October every year. April classes are held once per week on Wednesday evenings from 6:15-10:15pm for 24 weeks. October classes are held once per week on Tuesday evenings from 6:15-10:15pm for 24 weeks. The Anatomy & Physiology (A&P) portion of our program is all self-study. Students are credited 21 hours each week for the study of their A&P, completion of a mentorship and their required table and chair massages, which are all done outside of class time. The sum of these meets (and exceeds) the Colorado State requirements for state registration. With the limited in-class time, students are strongly encouraged to miss little class time, as all of the hands-on work is done in those limited hours.
Tuition is $5,250 plus a $50 application fee. This includes all textbooks, manuals, worksheets, and classroom supplies (i.e. linens, massage lotion, handouts). There are no hidden costs. Tuition is to be paid in six (6) monthly payments of $865, due the first class night of each month. Other payment plans may be arranged. No interest is charged if full payment is made by the last day of class. We offer a $100 discount for tuition paid in full within the first 30 days of class. If you would like to register for the next class, please complete an application and submit it with the application fee of $50.00. Credit cards are accepted.

Financial Aid
The “Save Up to Step Out” Program through the Pikes Peak Community Action Agency offers Individual Development Accounts (IDA) which use Assets for Independence (AFI) Federal Act funding. The program includes matching funds. With that, you must save for a six month period and the monies can then put toward your school tuition. Small grants toward a portion of your tuition may be received as well, through another PPCAA program. For more information on both of these programs, contact the Pikes Peak Community Action Agency, (719) 358-8396.
We keep our classes small enough, and tuition low enough, that our school does not qualify students to use most forms of financial aid.
Covered within the 600 hours:
Swedish Massage - The basic strokes used in most types of massage.
Introduction to Sports Massage - Focused on enhancing athletic performance, and preventing and rehabilitating athletic injuries.
Hydrotherapy - Treatment in which water is used externally.
Licensing/Registration - Many states issue a state license; however, since 2009 Colorado requires state registration. Most certified programs require 500 to 1,000 hours of classroom instruction and a passing grade on a selected standardized test. Information on the steps necessary for registering with the state, as well as testing will be given.
Business - Teaching you the skills you need to become a great Massage Therapist is our goal, but since most RMT's are in business for themselves, being a savvy business person is also important. We want our graduates to have long and successful careers. Your instructors have almost a century of collective experience in owning their own businesses. We want you to draw on that knowledge.
Infant and Prenatal Massage - Women experience easier pregnancies and deliveries through the use of massage. Babies are always healthier and happy with regular massages.
National Exam Preparation - Information on the steps necessary for registering with the state, as well as some assistance from a National Certification Board representative, will be offered to assist our students with a small amount of test preparation work.
