Of particular interest to Steamboat Mountain School is Krill’s extensive background in the integration of academics and competitive athletics. The school, founded in 1957, offers a comprehensive K-12 independent education with day and boarding options for upper school students. The unique modular schedule for upper school students enables student-athletes to pursue academic interests while accommodating the demands of competitive skiing or riding. At a recent information session at Steamboat Mountain School, Krill expressed enthusiasm about the modular schedule, stating, “The schedule will allow our winter athletes more flexibility throughout the entire year, enabling them to cultivate their training, competition, travel, and academic schedules to ensure their success both on the hill and in the classroom.’


“We first moved for the excellent winter sports training program for our child. We researched our options for high school and chose SMS because of small class sizes and experiential learning opportunities. SMS has provided him such a strong educational experience, we now feel that we truly moved to Steamboat so that he could attend this amazing school." -Parent '24
