We're so glad you found us.

At SMS we bring the classroom into the world and the world into the classroom. We would love to take the time to show your family around our campuses. You can experience not only the classroom and educational experience of SMS but also see the connections that students have with one another and with our world-class faculty. You will be able to see the environment in which they will learn to pack for a three-day backpacking trip, the stages they will perform on, the collaborative classroom settings where new ideas will come to life, and the open workspaces where the Global Studies programs will be planned. Schedule your visit to learn more about what makes the Emerald Campus and the Mountain Campus unique places to foster and inspire learning!

A Steamboat Mountain School education is more accessible than you think.

We realize that considering Steamboat Mountain School for your student’s education requires not only a commitment to our philosophy of learning but also a significant financial investment. This financial commitment should not be a barrier when it comes to providing your student with the best possible education, which is why we offer tuition assistance to families. On average, about 30-35% of our students have received some level of tuition assistance.
