    Steamboat Mountain School (SMS) is the ultimate High School / Boarding School for an active teenager who is motivated to receive a well rounded education with high academics and outdoor activities including ski (possibility ski racing), camping and Global International Studies abroad (4 continents in years, 1 month/year). Our son (15) and our family visited Steamboat in December 2018 and immediately felt welcome by amazing teachers and students. Our son is now a Freshman at SMS and loves it!

    There is no school like Steamboat Mountain School! The longevity of the faculty, the care of the faculty for the success of their students, the curriculum, the matriculation, and of course the campus, makes this THE IDEAL private, boarding school for anyone looking for an A+ boarding school!

    If one is considering a first-rate education, accompanied by a first-class alpine ski program, then Steamboat Mountain School is A MUST! We could not be happier with the skiing success of our son, and the coincident educational training!

    If you are considering Steamboat Mountain School, you will be making an excellent choice!
    My son was a 4-year student, who participated in the GIS program. The GIS program is probably the single most defining program for the development of critical thinking, global awareness, self-awareness, and community. Education is more than the rhetoric that is presented through the typical textbooks. At SMS they have rewritten the standard of education, through the use of the GIS program, outdoor athletic activity, and high personal standards. SMS is not a school to attend and hide from self-awareness, it is the school to attend to become enlightened with self-awareness and to grow as an individual, who is ready to take on college, the world and be successful along their path of life.
